National Truck Driver Appreciation Week

This year, National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is being observed during the week of September 8th -14th.  It’s a time for America to recognize and thank all professional truck drivers for their dedication, as they tackle one of our economy’s most critical and challenging jobs.

As an agent, we know finding a Workers' Comp trucking solution for your clients can be a challenging job as well.  Protecting these truckers is paramount, regardless if they’re classified as employees or have independent contractor status.  All Risks can help protect this increasingly growing class.
