Abbott Nutrition Teams with The Shippers Group to Show Driver Appreciation

Posted by Robin Siekerman on Sep 25, 2020

Truck drivers are the heartbeat of our economy. Without truck drivers, supply chains are crippled. National Truck Driver Appreciation Week gives us a chance to recognize the importance of truck drivers and the time they sacrifice on the road to keep goods moving. 

Especially this year during a global pandemic when truck drivers have dedicated themselves to the front lines to ensure food, consumer packaged goods and critical supplies are in the right place at the right time, to simply say “Thank You” just doesn’t seem like it’s enough. 

Abbott Nutrition once again teamed up with The Shippers Group to help make drivers feel special.   During National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, drivers upon arrival at TSG’s welcome centers were greeted with a sack full of goodies complements of Abbott.  TSG associates enjoyed the reaction of drivers as they received their goodie bags.

On behalf of our supply chain partner Abbott Nutrition and The Shippers Group, we sincerely say, “Thank You” to all truck drivers for your part in helping take care of American consumers, keeping supply chains in motion, and “driving” the U.S. economy.
