Volvo Trucks is taking nominations for the Volvo Trucks Safety Award, an annual competition that honors two fleets with exceptional driving records.
Each of the winning fleets will receive $25,000 when Volvo announces the awards at American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition in October, Volvo said Jan. 28.
“Safety is a top issue each year for Volvo Trucks and the entire industry,” Göran Nyberg, president of North American sales and marketing, said in a statement. Michelin Americas Truck Tires also sponsors the award.
The contest is open to all fleets in the United States and Canada with at least five trucks, one of which is a Volvo. Winners will be selected in two fleet mileage categories based on crash rates and crash prevention activities.
Applications will be accepted through July 31. Entry forms are available at www.volvotrucks.us.com/safetyaward.
