In honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 10-16, we wanted to show appreciation to GSC’s carriers. So, we hit the yard and spoke to some of the drivers who work with GSC and are sharing a question-and-answer profile. Throughout September, we will profile four GSC carriers, one each week – follow along!
At GSC, we value our relationships with our partners, and we are incredibly grateful for the support we get from our TWIC-card holding carrier network. Each week, GSC holds carrier appreciation events in our yards complete with food and snacks. We gather feedback from drivers who work with GSC on an ongoing basis and work quickly to resolve the issues and concerns.
GSC is staying up to date with local legislation or regulation that might impact carriers. We provide carriers promptly with timely information such as upcoming government service checks, planned construction or other events that impact traffic flow and more.
