Celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

Carriers, Convoy NewsPublished on September 12, 2022

Carriers get paid in eight hours for FREE with Convoy QuickPay™ for loads booked this week.

Driving a truck is one of the most common and underappreciated professions in America today. Every day, truck drivers transport the goods that make life easier and more accessible for all of us. As the saying goes, “If you bought it, a truck brought it.”

Life on the road is challenging. Imagine spending multiple nights away from family each week, driving a large, heavy truck through inclement weather, and dreading the inevitable (and costly) mechanical issues common in the industry. Truck prices and insurance premiums are expensive, especially for new drivers. After a long day, many truck drivers even struggle to find a safe place to park their trucks so they can sleep. Between COVID, high fuel prices, and low rates, many trucking companies are struggling to stay in business. 

At Convoy, we are committed to improving the lives of truck drivers and carriers. Our team obsesses over enhancing the trucking experience and making it easier to earn more with less hassle. In the past year we’ve expanded the ways our carriers can get paid, added new benefits to our TruckYeah savings program, and made renting dry van trailers more flexible than ever. In celebration of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we’re giving eligible carriers free* same-day payments via Convoy QuickPay on loads booked between today and Friday. 

From all of us at Convoy, we want to thank each and every truck driver for keeping this country rolling. If you happen to see a truck on the road today (or any day), give them a smile, say thank you, and give them space to safely merge onto the freeway. You might even get a trucker salute in return!
