Godfather of skateboarding Tony Hawk took time out of his busy schedule to thank truckers for delivering essential goods to the American public in spite of the many challenges posed by the pandemic.

What’s up truck drivers! It’s Tony Hawk. I just want to thank you for all you do, for delivering goods during this pandemic, and much-needed products. You guys are on the front lines. You’re doing the hard work. So thank you very much from me and also on behalf of GP Transco,” Hawk said.

Check out Tony Hawk’s inspiring full message in the video below.

Hawk’s “thank you” message was met with a warm response from hundreds of truckers from across the country.

GP Transco has partnered with multiple celebrities over the past year to help truckers feel some of the gratitude that they deserve. Last year, the carrier partnered with Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, and Ice-T to deliver messages of appreciation for the hardworking drivers who power the trucking industry.

GP Transco continues to disrupt trucking industry standards by looking for better and more driver-friendly ways to conduct freight operations. The company has been recognized for providing drivers with the highest pay of any “true” trucking company in the country, with W2 company drivers earning an average of 60 cpm in 2020, which comes from base pay + accessorial pay like profit-sharing, extra stops, breakdown pay, etc. GP Transco was also named “Best Fleet for Drivers” to work for in 2020 by tech company Samsara for their dedication to “elevating the driver experience.” 

GP Transco provides dry van freight and logistics services to customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. To join a team that goes the extra mile to support their company drivers and owner operators, click here to get started.
