Driver Appreciation Week

Posted by Aperia Technologies

This week, we celebrate National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. At Aperia, we want to take a moment and share our gratitude for our country’s 3.5 million professional truck drivers. So to all you drivers on the road today and every day, this one’s for you –

It’s never been easy to be a truck driver. You have to sacrifice time away from your family. You’re not always in safe environments. You have a grueling schedule. You’re often underappreciated.

Without you, we wouldn’t have functioning grocery stores, hospitals, and other essential services. We know you know this; we want you to know that we know it too. We appreciate your grit, your patience behind the wheel, and your dedication to the profession. With your trucks loaded to the max, you have forged on to deliver for America despite these added hardships.

As a supplier to the trucking industry, we know our company would not exist without you. From our Halo Tire Inflator to Halo Connect technology, everything we have created has been to help you stay safe and productive on the road.

In support of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, we’re offering independent operators free shipping and 10 percent off all Halo ATIS and Halo Connect purchases this week with code DRIVE. It is the least we can do for this resilient group who does so much for our economy. From all of us to all of you, thank you, truck drivers!

Here are some personal words of thanks from your Aperia family:
