CALGARY, Alta. – It’s National Trucking Week, and the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA), along with the Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA), will be celebrating throughout the province from Sept. 4-10.
Three driver appreciation days will be held in Alberta, with volunteers handing out snack packs to drivers at vehicle inspection locations in Demmitt Sept. 7, Leduc Sept. 9 and Airdrie Sept. 13.
“National Trucking Week is an opportunity to applaud the efforts of the drivers, dispatchers and all frontline workers,” said AMTA president Lorraine Card. “The people behind the wheel are what make the transport industry a success and it is a privilege to be a part of celebrating Alberta’s transportation industry.”
National Trucking Week aims to highlight the role of the trucking industry in Canada by celebrating the more than 400,000 men and women who transport goods across the country.
