Freight Factoring Company Freight Capital Celebrates Truck Driver Appreciation Week

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - For the fifth year, Freight Capital, a leader in freight factoring services, hosts gift-giving booths at truck stops in California and Arkansas during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 12-15.

"It's a way to give thanks to hundreds of trucking companies in a very personal way," said Freight Capital employee and DAW volunteer, Melissa Sistar. "Almost everything we consume or use on a daily basis is delivered by truck so we want to gratefully acknowledge their service."

During Truck Driver Appreciation Week, organizations within the trucking and transportation industry take the time to honor professional truck drivers for their hard work and commitment to deliver goods across the country. Celebrations include safety awards, cookouts, windshield washing crews, video submission contests, gift giving crews, and events that show support for the families of truck drivers.

Freight Capital gives out goodie bags, water, and prizes of all kinds such as duffle bags, cups, t-shirts, hats, padfolios, load matching memberships from, model race cars from Conway, and accessories from Brixton Apparel and Black Box Distributors.

They logged over 408 billion miles per year in trucks that delivered 8.8 billion tons of freight in 2009, or 68% of total U.S. freight tonnage, according to the American Trucking Association.

"The best part about our job is the enjoyment we get from being involved in the trucking community," said Freight Capital President, John Downing. "We get out of the office and chat with truck drivers about their life on the road. It's an excellent reminder of how important their job is to our way of life."
