The championships were held in Orlando in August.
Bolduc, a FedEx Express driver for 23 years, has accrued nearly 2 million safe-driving miles. He was an America’s Road Team Captain in 2000. When he was asked to share his strategy for winning the grand champion title, Bolduc told Transport Topics: “Practice. Practice. Practice. And always, just safety; that’s No. 1.”
MCE is scheduled for Oct. 21-25 at Orlando’s Orange County Convention Center. The theme will be “Building Trucking’s Future.”
“Each year, MCE gives ATA the chance to gather together, celebrate our industry, focus on the future and set a path forward for trucking, and this year will be no exception,” ATA's Chris Spear said. “MCE has been, and will remain, the premier gathering for trucking industry leaders and executives.”
