Dollar General is celebrating National Truck Driver Appreciation week by demonstrating its gratitude to all DG Private Fleet and carrier partner drivers.
“We applaud our DG Private Fleet drivers for their efforts, dedication and commitment to our stores and for playing a critical role in ensuring customers find the products they need at their local store,” said Tony Zuazo, Dollar General’s executive vice president of global supply chain. “We are proud to recognize the DG Private Fleet and our carrier partners as part of this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and greatly appreciate all that they do.”
Dollar General is marking the week with daily activities including complimentary lunches, as well as giveaways and prize drawings for all DG Private Fleet employees.
