We do our best to show appreciation for our drivers every week of the year, but this week, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we are celebrating along with the rest of the country! According to the American Trucking Associations, this week recognizes the 3.4 million professional men and women who deliver our goods and keep our highways safe.

Professional truck drivers are at the core of our nation’s economy – they move the products we all use every day across the country. Truckload drivers, especially, put in extra effort to deliver products safely and with a smile. We are extremely grateful for all of your hard work. To show our appreciation, we will be hosting free BBQ lunch events at each of our terminals. If you are unable to make it to a terminal event, we will reimburse you up to $15 for a special lunch on the road. We hope you can join us. Thank you for all that you do!

Last weekend, we sent our Con-way Truckload True to the Troops truck to a Wounded Warrior charity ride and poker run hosted by our sister company, Con-way Freight, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The ride consisted of bikes, cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractor-trailers and it started and ended at Con-way Freight In total, Con-way raised $9,177 for the nonprofit organization.

Wounded Warrior Project is a veterans’ charity organization that helps ensure that wounded service members are well adjusted and taken care of when they return from war.

Below are a few photos from the exciting event. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated!

From America’s landmarks to beautiful landscapes to shiny Con-way Truckload trucks, we received over 100 different photos. Fans of our Facebook page submitted votes for their favorites, and we’re pleased to announce our winners:
