INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - September 15, 2014) - National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (September 15-19) is upon us once again and Flagship Logistics Group demonstrates their appreciation for America's truck drivers and their families by providing a Carrier Scholarship Program.
Flagship Logistics Group recognizing the shortage of truck drivers in America and is offering a Carrier Scholarship Program through their Rising Tide Program to help assist truck drivers and their families.
Up to three $2,500 college scholarships will be awarded to qualified students of employees at eligible carriers of Flagship Logistics Group. Applications for the 2015 scholarships will be accepted starting in September 15, 2014 - January 31, 2015.
As with every year we feel it is important to declare our continued appreciation for the 3.5 million men and women who drive trucks. Knowing that everything we touch, from our coffee mugs, computers, clothes, and TVs that we watch, are all a result of a truck driver's hard work. As we quickly approach the fourth quarter the holiday season is approaching and it is a perfect time to once again acknowledge our appreciation for truck drivers. We know you are on the road sometimes a thousand miles from home and odds are you are missing out on big events like anniversaries, birthdays, and weddings.
"The truck drivers and the carriers they work for are a key piece of our economy because they provide us with everyday items that we need or desire. We know that on a day-to-day basis they deal with the added pressures of regulations, sky rocketing costs, and higher service expectations making things more challenging for them and that is just another reason why they deserve a huge THANK YOU!," stated Bob Moran, CEO of Flagship Logistics Group. "As a society we need to wake up and be grateful for the hard work truck drivers do to keep America moving along."
Flagship Logistics Group is always proud to recognize drivers during the National Truck Driver Appreciation Week this year (September 14-20) and every day! As a small way of thanking professional truck drivers for their hard work and dedication, each of our employees will take the time to thank the truck drivers and carriers they work with. If you follow Flagship Logistics Group on Twitter or Facebook, please give a feel free to tweet or post your thank you to America's truck drivers!
