Since the vital role a truck driver plays happens behind the scenes, it’s easy for many to overlook how critical they are to the American way of life. At Aim, however, drivers are anything but overlooked. They, along with our diesel mechanics, are front and center in all that we do.
Celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW) is one of many ways Aim shows appreciation for our drivers. For those unfamiliar, this weeklong event calls upon Americans to show their appreciation for the country’s 3.6 million professional truck drivers and the fundamental role they carry out with pride and humility.
While Aim doesn’t need a special reminder of how crucial our truck drivers are for us to be able to provide best-in-class dedicated fleet services through our Aim Integrated Logistics division, Aim never misses seizing NTDAW to give our professional drivers an extra helping of appreciation.
