Truck drivers have been rightfully earning the recognition they deserve as essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Schneider is going the extra mile to further honor those efforts during 2020 Driver Appreciation Days, which coincides with National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.

It’ll be one big nationwide celebration to honor the hard work of associates to keep the economy moving and recognize Schneider’s 85thanniversary. Much like most events in 2020, Schneider is adjusting to meet safety protocols and social distancing requirements.

It takes a lot of talent to support Schneider’s drivers and keep them moving. Typically, Schneider holds appreciation events for office, shop and warehouse associates in June, but due to the pandemic, we’re handling all formal appreciation activities the same week.

Non-driving associates will be participating in and have access to:

  • Virtual events and contests.
  • Recognition activities.
  • Leader videos.
  • Prize drawings.
