SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) - This year, the National Truck Drivers Appreciation Week celebrates September 16-22. Throughout the country, this week is viewed as an opportunity to recognize and thank the hardworking drivers who deliver goods to every corner of the country.
Freight Capital is not just a factoring company, but a true advocate for truckers -- supportive and active in many of the state and national trucking associations. Each year, the company hosts special gift-giving booths at truck stops in Southern California as well as one in Memphis, Arkansas. In cooperation with the truck stop vendors, Freight Capital's gifting teams distribute treats, bottled water and small, useful gifts throughout the day.
"All the employees at Freight Capital are very aware of the demanding complexities of trucking and appreciate the determination it takes to be a professional truck driver today. It is at times a physically demanding job and takes them away from their home base for long periods of time," says John Downing, President of Freight Capital. "We don't get out of the office very often, so we want to make the most of that time to personally thank every driver we can."
The slogan "Trucks Bring It" is used extensively during the week and shows up on banners, truck decals, hats and flyers. It was originally created by the American Trucking Association (ATA) and quickly adopted as the motto for the transportation industry to remind everyone that practically everything is delivered on a truck.
Freight Capital is closely aligned with the freight hauling industry and provides financial services that facilitate the payment of loads by advancing funds to carriers to meet fuel and other operating demands. As part of Freight Capital's mission to provide financial improvement and business advancement for every trucking company, the company sets aside this week each year to staff a booth at local truck stops to commemorate drivers.
