what have we done for you this week?

This week, the Ohio Trucking Association encourages you to nominate your best drivers for our 2018 Driver of the Year! The 2018 Driver of the Year is chosen by a panel representing the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, and the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration. In addition to the honor of joining the ranks of previous Drivers of the Year, the recipient of this prestigious award receives a Super-Bowl style ring and recognition at our annual Driver of the Year Banquet. Driver of the Year nominees must be employed by an Ohio Trucking Association member company. Equipment driven, years with present employer, total years driving, details of preventable and non-preventable accidents, and participation in industry and community activities are all considered during the vetting process. Twelve finalists are selected and introduced by their company representative at the Driver of the Year banquet, and one is crowned Driver of the Year. Nominate your driver today! For any questions, please contact Bradie Berry at bradie@ohiotrucking.org.
