Septem­ber 3 to 9 is Na­tional Truck­ing Week

The Cana­dian Truck­ing Al­liance (CTA), the coun­try’s na­tional truck­ing group, in con­junc­tion with the pro­vin­cial truck­ing as­so­ci­a­tions, launched Na­tional Truck­ing Week many years ago. It begins on the first Sun­day in Sept. and runs to the fol­low­ing Satur­day.

The pur­pose of the week­long cel­e­bra­tion is to rec­og­nize the im­por­tant con­tri­bu­tions made by the 400,000 Cana­dian men and women who keep the coun­try’s freight mov­ing.

Pro­vin­cial truck­ing as­so­ci­a­tions, car­ri­ers, in­dus­try sup­pli­ers and other stake­hold­ers are en­cour­aged to un­der­take ac­tiv­i­ties in their own province to mark the event. In pre­vi­ous years, pro­vin­cial as­so­ci­a­tions have marked the oc­ca­sion with news­pa­per sup­ple­ments, ra­dio ad­ver­tis­ing, con­tests, spe­cial pro­mo­tions, and spe­cial events at truck stops and road­side in­spec­tion sta­tions.

Car­ri­ers and in­dus­try sup­pli­ers have hosted BBQs, break­fasts, truck washes, of­fered spe­cial give­aways to em­ploy­ees and marked the week event with a wide va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties.
