Martignetti Companies, a New England distributor of wine and spirits, joins the nation in recognizing America’s 3.5 million-plus truck drivers who play a critical role maintaining supply chains across the country.
This year, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week takes on special significance, the company says, considering the crucial role that drivers and warehouse personnel have played during the Covid-19 pandemic.
America’s family-owned wine and spirits wholesalers employ nearly 19,000 truck drivers, from over 3,000 locations nationwide, and are an integral part of an industry that creates nearly 88,000 jobs and $7.46 billion in wages for U.S. employees. America’s truck drivers and warehouse workers, who support the drivers, are essential workers, on the front lines to ensure timely delivery of goods and services. “Our supply chain would be nonexistent without the invaluable services of these men and women,” the company says.
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, created by the American Trucking Associations, takes place September 13-19, 2020. Martignetti Companies Leadership Team will kick-off the week-long celebration with a video message from employees showing their appreciation.
“We believe our staff is the best in the industry, and I am proud to recognize the efforts of our professional drivers who safely navigate the roads every day during the pandemic, to deliver wine and spirits to locally licensed on and off-premise retailers,” says Edward DeVito, SVP Warehouse and Delivery Operations.
