Caption: Volunteers thank truckers at Port Houston’s container terminals.
With more than 3.5 million professional truck drivers on the road today, the men and women of the trucking industry work one of the most demanding jobs in America. These individuals are responsible for delivering our goods safely, securely and on time.
Port Houston, along with Gulf Winds International and its More Than the Move Foundation, teamed up to celebrate this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (Sept. 8-14) to show appreciation for their services.
Team members from both Port Houston and Gulf Winds International surprised the truck drivers at the Bayport Container Terminal with homemade breakfast tacos and cold water as they exited the facilities.
“This week was a perfect opportunity to recognize our partners in the trucking industry and say thank you to those who help drive our economy,” said Garret Berg, manager of community relations and events for Port Houston. “These men and women are always on the move, so we were glad for the chance to catch them and let them know that they are appreciated.” More Than the Move Foundation is the nonprofit arm of Gulf Winds International, a local logistics and drayage company based in Houston.
