During the holiday season, it is easy to become distracted by the rush of shopping and planning events. All the while, there are hard working men and women out delivering the necessary goods to make your holiday celebrations possible. Without trucking, nearly all the tangible gifts, food, and more that we enjoy so much for the holidays would not be delivered to local stores for purchase. Through all the holiday festivities, please take some time to thank and appreciate the trucking professionals that make our celebrations possible.
In 2017, truck drivers are forecasted to deliver a total of over 15.18 billion tons of freight through all modes according to the American Trucking Association. With over 70% of the needed freight shipped by trucking, drivers are becoming more essential than ever to our economic well-being. As a vital piece to what keeps America moving, we continue to be thankful and certainly appreciative of our drivers’ contributions and dedication to making the holiday season enjoyable for countless individuals.
It is a tradition at Melton Truck Lines that if a driver would like to be home for Christmas, they will be routed to their home. Our Operations department works far in advance to ensure our drivers are given this much-deserved time with their family and friends to celebrate. Nearly 99% of our fleet will be getting to spend Christmas with their families thanks to Melton’s dedication and our drivers’ hard work. With drivers possibly working through nearly every other holiday during the year, it is both necessary and rewarding to allow them time home for the Christmas holiday.
Melton Truck Lines would like to wish you all an enjoyable holiday season and Christmas Day with your families and friends! We appreciate your commitment to Melton and delivering holiday joy to so many across our nation.
