Showing Love to the Folks Who Deliver Our Freight
The CPG® family had a blast celebrating our owner-operators during last week's Truck Driver Appreciation Week event! Each terminal had tables and tents set up to greet drivers in between runs, and there were special giveaways for everyone.
Celebrating Our Owner-Operators During CPG's Driver Appreciation Week
The CPG Team pulled out all the stops to show our Owner-Operators just how much we appreciate them during our very own CPG Driver Appreciation Week.
Set apart from September's National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, the event ran from Oct. 19 through Oct. 23, and was a special time to celebrate our fleet and give them some well-deserved recognition for the work they do going above and beyond the industry standard.
Every day, our terminal teams across the country were out providing snacks and encouragement as the fleet kept the freight moving. A fun bit of encouragement was making drivers their own Spotify playlist to listen to on the open road. Check out the playlist here.
A big hit with our driver community was the CPG-branded high-vis jackets. Each and every CPG Owner-Operator received their very own cozy coat, which will help keep them safe and warm in the coming winter months and beyond.
CPG IC, Sam Lotfy, sports his new high-vis jacket and shows off his ride!
Grand Prize Winners
Throughout CPG's Driver Appreciation Week, on Facebook, drivers could enter to win a CPG swag bag by 'liking' a post each day. There were 12 lucky winners - two each day, and an additional two because we just love ❤️ our owner-operators!
We ended the week on a high note: On Friday, every single IC's name was entered into a Grand Prize raffle and some top-notch prizes were given away.

What better way to cap off an incredible week than being featured in FleetOwner's "Five good things that happened in trucking this week – Oct. 23". It's so great to see our drivers get the national recognition they deserve!
