TP Trucking Driver Appreciation Week

National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a time when trucking companies across America honor their drivers for their hard work. Trucking is a demanding and important job, so TP Trucking spent the week celebrating the professional men and women that make up our team.

Driver appreciation week

Every year for more than 15 years, TP Trucking has treated our drivers with three days of meals cooked by the managers. Giveaways are part of the fun each year, with this year's gift bags including headlamps, gloves, toiletries, as well as several other items donated by numerous vendors like Papé, Pilot, Hays Oil, General Trailer, and much more.

The goal of Driver Appreciation Week is not just to feed and dote on our employees, but also to build and grow relationships between team members.

“Anybody that comes in the yard can sit down, relax, get a good meal and talk with us,” said Craig Turner, General Manager for TP Trucking. “We make ourselves very available.”

Every year, each TP Trucking region selects their Driver of the Year. For 2016, we would like to congratulate: 

  • Company Driver (West): Mona Chisum
  • Owner-Operator (West): Nick Sauer
  • Company Driver (East): Laramie McDoniel
  • Owner-Operator (East): Brian Breese
  • Mechanic of the Year: Cliff Wilson

Because of TP Trucking’s steady growth, many of the drivers who joined us for Driver Appreciation Week this year were brand new to the company. Throughout the week, managers were told that the respect shown to new and old employees was a stand-out reason why they choose to drive for TP Trucking.

TP Trucking is always looking for new drivers to join our team—both as company drivers or as owner-operators. We offer competitive compensation and benefits packages and a wide range of routes and schedules. If you know someone who may be interested in working for TP Trucking, please let them know we're hiring.
