Is Your Big Rig Looking Sharp? Stop by and see us for National Truck Driver Appreciation Day. You may win a $250.00 gift card!

Calling all big rigs! Choptank Transport is gearing up for its annual celebration to honor America’s truck drivers during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week.


This year Choptank Transport will be adding a Lookin’ Good contest to its annual celebration. In addition to handing out goodie bags to truckers passing through, the best looking 18-wheeler will win a $250 American Express gift certificate.

 Where and When?

Choptank Transport will be setting up its celebratory tent on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at the I-95 Sunoco station in the Rest Area/Travel Plaza in Newark, Delaware from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. This is one of the busiest rest area/truck stops between Maine and Florida and is a popular spot for truckers to fuel up, grab a hot meal and take a nap if needed.


“It’s always fun when we are giving out gift bags and we run into a driver who is hauling a load for Choptank,” says Carter Towers, Corporate Recruiter at Choptank Transport. “They are always so appreciative and it’s great to meet carriers face-to-face.”


Truck drivers work long hours away from their families, driving through all kinds of weather to get our goods to market so we can have the luxury of shopping at our local supermarket or nearby mall. It is important to remember our whole supply chain is nonexistent without the invaluable services of these men and women.


This year’s sponsors include Pepsico, Carolina Foods, Transcore, Avalon Risk and International Freightliners.

Here is a brief market overview and report on all the factors driving the current market, our expectations for where it’s headed, and most importantly, how to manage this market and come out on top!
