ATA Member Companies, Drivers Recognized During Salute to America

ARLINGTON, Va., July 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, drivers from several American Trucking Associations member companies were guests of President Trump as part of the White House's "Salute to America" Independence Day celebration.

"Our members and drivers are continuing to keep our nation moving despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "While we as a country take time to celebrate our freedoms today, we appreciate that Americans ? from the president on down ? are continuing to recognize our industry's important role in supporting our frontline responders, while continuing to deliver to stores, homes and markets across the country."

Drivers from nine ATA member companies were part of the White House's event honoring the efforts of frontline workers during the ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

"ATA has stepped up to help provide drivers with sanitizer and face coverings so they can continue to do their job safely, as well as working with federal and state officials to ensure they have access to the facilities they need to keep delivering critical freight to hospitals, markets and homes," said ATA Executive Vice President of Industry Affairs Elisabeth Barna. "It has been so gratifying to see these professionals get the recognition they deserve from across the country, including at today's White House event."
