The Real Santa: Postal Truck Drivers of America

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, but did you know that Santa has many names? He is represented by a fleet of postal truck drivers across the United States. When you order a gift for the holiday season it will be processed through a variety of sorting centers, airplanes, and trucks. As such, the amount of mail and packages moved during the holiday season is exponentially increased.

Thank a Truck Driver

With the strenuous holiday schedule, postal truck drivers often drive through Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and even Christmas Day. They sacrifice time with their families to ensure that packages are delivered on time. If anyone deserves milk and cookies, it is the American truck driver. If you know one or meet one this holiday season, be sure to thank them for everything they do. Perhaps consider buying them a cookie and glass of 2%.


Support System

Santa doesn’t get the job done alone. He has elves and reindeer to help him along, and so do truck drivers. For instance, Matheson’s truck drivers enjoy on-site mechanics that keep trucks in tip-top shape, and a 24-hour control center in case anything happens while they are on the road. The tractor-trailers that move millions of presents across the continental United States serve as Santa’s sleigh during the holiday season.

Santa and Postal Truck Drivers

Santa Claus has a list he checks twice, but truck drivers have a schedule to keep. The creed of the United States Postal Service is, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” The same is true for Santa and Postal Contractors alike.
