Drivers Recognized for Essential Roles

As the year in trucking wraps up, there is plenty to reflect on and to be thankful for.  No one can dispute the fact, however, that there has been no bigger news in 2020 than COVID-19. It’s heartwarming to realize that drivers everywhere have been there, through it all, making sure the items we need are available. Even in the midst of great health risk, drivers are rolling down that highway. Loaded up with masks and sanitizer, they continue answering America’s call by delivering the items we need every day. 

As we celebrate the beginning distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s no surprise that drivers everywhere are being recognized for their bravery and sacrifice during this pandemic. That’s just one reason why the American Trucking Association has called on policymakers to remember the trucking industry’s essential status in the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine. “Our workforce represents a central and critical link in the nations supply chain…,” ATA’s executive vice president for advocacy, Bill Sullivan, said in a recent press release. 

Truck drivers make up a unique community and we’re proud to be a part of that family. If one were to match a picture to the word hero, that image would be a truck driver. Those in the trucking industry have literally gone the extra mile throughout this national health crisis and they continue delivering, even as COVID-19 numbers skyrocket. In appreciation of that service, Millis Transfer extends our deepest gratitude. For those interested in available opportunities, we encourage you to give us a call at 1-800-937-0880. From all of us here, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
