Earlier today, Dart Transit Company reported the release of an upcoming National Truck Driver Appreciation Week themed episode on its Dart Network Podcast, now available online.
The upcoming podcast episode, part of the Dart Network Podcast launched over two years ago, will feature interviews with Dart drivers, department heads, and leadership figures regarding National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.
“Truck drivers may very well be the most under-appreciated workforce in America. We can all at times take our most precious resources for granted. It’s human nature,” said James Langley, President of Dart Transit Company. “We often take for granted our spouses, our children, our jobs, and other very important parts of our lives.”
Available on Spotify, iTunes, Stitcher, and other platforms that host podcasts, The Dart Network Podcast was originally released during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week in 2016.
Dart reports that the idea to show support for the week through a podcast comes from the effectiveness and popularity of the podcast.
“When we started looking at our plans for Driver Appreciation this year, we thought the Dart Network Podcast could provide a great avenue for the office staff to express their appreciation for the men and women on the road in the Dart Network,” said Russ Moore, Dart’s Vice President of Communications & Marketing. “We are always looking for new ways to connect with the company drivers and owner-operators in the Dart Network, and the podcast has become an effective platform for us.”
Dart reports that the company will participate in other activities to commemorate National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, including company lunch events at Dart locations across the country.
“Sometimes, it takes weeks like Driver Appreciation Week for us to properly reflect on the value our drivers and owner-operators truly bring not only to Dart, but to our country,” said Langley. “Our driving community not only keeps our nation moving, but it also provides every single person at Dart an opportunity to earn a living, one that should be in a never-ending act of service not only to our customers, but to the lifeblood of our company and economy, our drivers It can never be said enough, but thank you for what you do for Dart, and thank you for what you do to keep America moving.”
