Hewitt Trucking recognizes drivers

Hewitt Trucking of Ida Grove is honoring its drivers for their hard work, customer service and commitment to safety, during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Sept. 12-18, 2021.

“Driving a truck is one of the country’s most demanding and important jobs,” according to the Hewitts. There are more than 3.5 million professional truck drivers nationwide – delivering everything from food to local grocery stores to books to neighborhood schools.

“These dedicated men and women log close to 400 billion miles annually and, last year, delivered over 70% of America’s total annual freight, or 10.77 billion tons. Eighty percent of U.S. communities depend solely on the trucking industry for their goods and commodities.”
