Volvo Trucks is searching for the safest fleets in North America to recognize them with the annual Volvo Trucks Safety Award. For the fifth consecutive year, two fleets with the safest driving records and top safety programs will receive $25,000
to be used toward their safety-related activities.
Volvo Trucks will again join Michelin in sponsoring the Volvo Trucks Safety Award, which highlights the importance of highway safety for the trucking industry and the motoring public.
The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is open to all U.S. and Canadian fleets operating at least five Class 8 units. Fleets must have at least one Volvo tractor in operation to be eligible for the award. Entrants will be ranked by their accident frequency rates. Participating fleets will also be judged on their accident prevention activities.
The deadline for entry is July 31. The winners of the award will be announced during the American Trucking Associations' Management Conference & Exhibition in October 2013. The two grand prizes will be awarded to the fleets with the best records in two divisions based on annual vehicle miles traveled: less than 20 million miles and more than 20 million miles.
