DRIVER APPRECIATION WEEK 2018 RECAP!

on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 in Company News


Another year of Driver Appreciation Week is here and gone, and what a week it was! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we have the BEST drivers on the road and we appreciate all of the hard work they bring forth to keep America moving forward!

The week kicked off with a message from TMC founder and CEO, Harrold Annett. He thanked all of our drivers for continuing to display TMC’s culture of PRIDE while pursuing our Destination of Excellence, saying “I cannot tell you how many times in the past year I have heard our customers tell us that TMC has the BEST drivers in the industry. Every time I hear those words, I cannot tell you how PROUD it makes me feel, and how happy I am to have our EMPLOYEE-OWNERS out there representing our company as true professionals. Thank you!”

Just as we did last year, the name of every TMC driver was put in a raffle for a chance to win some awesome prizes throughout the week. Each day we went LIVE on our Facebook page to draw names and announce the winners. Among the items given away were leather luggage bags from Peterbilt, a variety of gift cards, multiple TV’s, a grill, barstools, and more! 

On Thursday, we had office employees at our Des Moines and Brownsburg terminals rolling up their sleeves and cleaning trucks to give our drivers a much-deserved break to kick back and relax! Everyone knows that TMC has the cleanest and shiniest trucks on the road, but this doesn’t come without the hard work of our drivers to keep them that way!

Finally, no Driver Appreciation Week is complete without FREE FOOD at all of our terminals. Each location had some delicious items on the menu throughout the week to keep our drivers fueled up and ready to go! Since we know our drivers are out there putting in the work and the miles and aren’t always able to stop by a terminal to partake in the free food and goodies, we sent several TMC representatives out on the road to bring Driver Appreciation Week to them! Many were out at customers and shippers to prepare meals, give out our custom 2018 TMC Driver Appreciation Week t-shirts, and lend a helping hand in tarping and strapping their loads. 



No one does Driver Appreciation Week like TMC! 

To all of our drivers, there are never enough THANK YOU’s to go around to show all of our gratitude and appreciation for what you do. You continue to work hard and make sacrifices every day to keep TMC the best in the business. You all take ‘Destination: Excellence’ to the next level, and it never goes unnoticed!

And of course, a special thank you to our sponsors for appreciating our drivers just as much as we do!
