Thank You BCOs!
National Truck Driver Appreciation Week
Each year during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week (NTDAW), industry professionals across America take time to honor the country’s 3.5 million professional truck drivers. To thank these professional men and women for their service and commitment, this year’s NTDAW celebration is set for September 9-15.
During NTDAW, Landstar shows business capacity owners (BCOs) - Landstar’s term for independent contractor truck owner-operators with exclusive lease agreements - some extra gratitude by providing free lunches throughout the week and, this year, our BCO Appreciation Days event in Rockford, Illinois.
Landstar BCOs are invited to any of Landstar’s orientation centers for free lunches and a chance to win Landstar prizes Monday, Sept. 10 through Friday, Sept. 14. Lunch will be served at 12 p.m. local time at each of these Landstar orientation centers:
- Fort Worth, Texas
- Jefferson, Georgia
- Indianapolis, Indiana
- Reedsville, Pennsylvania
- Sparks, Nevada
- Rockford, Illinois
Landstar’s NTDAW celebration also includes the final BCO Appreciation Days event and truck giveaway of the year. Join us in Rockford, Illinois, Sept. 12-13. The Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway powered by Comdata will be held during the event on Sept. 12.
We’ll also be celebrating BCOs on social media throughout the week, as well as posting opportunities to win Landstar prizes. Be sure to follow the Landstar Owner-Operator (BCO) Facebook page, and @LandstarSystem on Twitter.
