WATCH: Check out this salute to the drivers who step up to deliver for their county

Every single day, American truckers answer the call to deliver essential goods like food, fuel, and medicine– and they deserve our respect and appreciation every day of the year.

As National Truck Driver Appreciation Week nears, Salt Lake City, Utah-based trucking company C.R. England shared a video highlighting the vital contribution of American truckers toward keeping the country moving forward, often at great sacrifice to themselves and their own families.

The video focuses on the quiet perseverance of the men and women of the trucking industry as they battle through long hours, harsh weather conditions, and uncertain times in order to provide the public with food and supplies, one load at a time. The video serves as a reminder that truckers are front line workers who provide transportation services that are so reliable that they are often taken for granted, but it also encourages viewers to stop and consider the role that trucking plays in keeping Americans safe and fed.

“C.R. England salutes the unsung heroes who deliver relief and comfort each and every day. We are so proud of each and every one of you. You truly are heroes,” the narrator says.

Check out the stirring video below.
