The flatbed trucking, refrigerated trucking and heavy hauling that we perform for our clients across the continental states; there is no stopping on Thanksgiving. And this, of course, applies to all trucking outfits in the industry. It applies to days leading up to this warm, sharing holiday or the days immediately after. Imagine how many drivers were on the road hauling turkeys, sides and desserts for the Thanksgiving feasting for hundreds of millions of people, or delivering goods that had to get somewhere on time for post-Thanksgiving Black Friday and Cyber Monday retail sales. It is these drivers and their equipment that keep big holidays and big sales happening for all of us.
In a matter of speaking our drivers (and those of the entire industry) literally drive a huge segment of the U.S. economy. Alongside of hauling products, dry and chilled goods, there’s tens of thousands of tons of heavy equipment or supplies needing delivery for projects from California to Connecticut. Day and night, day after day drivers in their rigs are delivering the nuts and bolts of our consumer economy, and this is part of what we need to be thankful for.
Thanksgiving on the road—though a Lone Ranger kind of holiday as you’re generally alone with your rig—can still be celebrated with video chatting with love ones and a good Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant or diner. The road is about the best place to give thanks for all the circumstances and people who make drivers’ lives ones of well being, fulfillment and camaraderie.
Here at Great Western Transportation, we’d like take this Thanksgiving to express our appreciation for all the drivers whose work is to deliver for our clients everyday of the year—doing their work with pride, ethics and intelligence.
And we also have deep thanks for all of our clients who utililize our services—both established clients who use us year after year, and new customers just joining us.
As the holiday season is rushing up to us, please keep us at GW Transportation in mind for all of your flatbed, heavy hauling and chilled freight trucking.
