Truck Driver Appreciation Week, taking place officially September 14-20 this year, gives us an opportunity to express our thanks to the individuals in our company who make the wheels turn, take care of our customers and do it all in a safe and professional manner.
On behalf of the entire Cardinal organization we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to each and every one of you for everything you do. We know, understand and respect the work that you do. We know it’s not easy out there dealing with traffic, construction, weather and those pesky “four-wheelers.”
Every day our Company Drivers and Owner-Operators make a ton of on-time deliveries for our customers. Every day almost every Company Driver and Owner-Operator operates their trucks safely and handles their responsibilities injury free. Every day our Company Drivers and Owner-Operators come to work and handle our business in a very professional manner. The fact that so much good goes on in this company every day is a testament to the good folks working for and engaged with this company we call Cardinal. A company, by definition, is a group of people working toward a common cause – and we have a great group of people associated with this company.
Nothing at Cardinal is more important than your safety. You see Cardinal’s commitment to safety every day in our training and awareness programs, our high standards of maintenance and our strict compliance with Hours of Service regulations. We challenge you to incorporate safety into your life, whether that is in a Cardinal truck or in your personal vehicle.
We would also like to take a minute and thank the spouses and families of our Company Drivers and Owner-Operators. We know it’s not easy for your moms, dads, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters to be out on the road. We know the reason many of our drivers do what they do is to take care of you. Your care and support of them as they go about their daily responsibilities is very important to them so make sure you, too, take a minute to thank them for what they do.
Thanks again to all Company Drivers and Owner-Operators. We appreciate you and your efforts, we continue to support your safe driving and we wish you great success at Cardinal.
President & Chief Operating Officer, Cardinal Logistics
