Going the Extra Mile: Wright Transportation’s Driver Appreciation Week Takes Trucking Industry Appreciation to the Next Level

Truck Driver Appreciation Week is an important time for many in the transportation industry. The hardworking drivers who operate big rigs and deliver goods across the country deserve to be recognized for their dedication and perseverance. Wright Transportation recently hosted their own Driver Appreciation Week, where we hope to show ALL drivers just how much they mean to our every day lives!

From yeti cups to backpacks, the giveaways were truly impressive. The company spared no expense in thanking their drivers for their hard work. Yeti coolers and TVs topped the list of prizes, which were much appreciated by the drivers. Such a gesture not only boosts driver morale, but it also reinforces the culture of appreciation in the trucking industry.

Throughout the week, drivers were eligible for a variety of awesome giveaways. These included yeti cups and coolers, backpacks for carrying supplies on the road, and even a large screen television. 

But giveaways weren’t the only way we showed our appreciation! Each day, we provided a delicious lunch for all Class A CDL drivers, as well as breakfast on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This provided a great opportunity for drivers to connect with one another, bond with their colleagues, and take a well-deserved break from the road. 

Check out some of the fun and giveaways in the photos below:

It’s important to recognize that drivers often put their personal lives on hold to bring us the goods and supplies we need. They spend long hours on the road, often away from their families for extended periods of time. The sacrifices that drivers make, to keep our stores stocked and our communities running smoothly, are worthy of recognition.

The next time you see a truck driver, be sure to give them your thanks – no matter what week it is!


Wright Transportation, Inc., was founded in 1999 with five trucks and a strong commitment to quality service. Since then, the company has grown to become one of the largest carriers in the region, with over 200 trucks.
