ABF is celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Sept. 11-17 with a systemwide campaign called, “Setting the Bar.” The campaign is designed to underscore the fundamental role of transportation industry employees in building and sustaining economic growth. During the campaign, each ABF employee is sent a note of appreciation, and ABF service centers host special events.
“There is something to be said for setting the bar high,” says Wes Kemp, president and chief executive officer of Fort Smith, Ark.-based ABF. “This campaign recognizes the hard work and continuing efforts of all ABF employees to uphold the highest standards of excellence. Our success is built on perpetual teamwork and personal attention to detail. We commend and thank ABF employees everywhere for their individual and joint contributions to the achievements of our company.”
