Heavy Duty Trucking has been named a national finalist in the 2017 Azbee Awards of Excellence, which are awarded by the American Society for Business Publication Editors.

HDT was named a finalist for the four-part series on The Modern Maintenance Manager. The series examined what the trucking industry’s most forward-looking maintenance and equipment executives are doing to hire and keep technicians, manage employees, increase efficiency and productivity, and meet other demands placed on the modern maintenance manager.  

The series consisted of feature articles by editor in chief Deborah Lockridge, executive editor David Cullen, and technology contributing editor Jim Beach.

“While many articles in HDT and competitive magazines cover buying and maintaining trucks, we wanted to do something different,” remarked Lockridge. “We worked to pull together all the trends affecting truck maintenance and offer insight into how they affect the person responsible for a fleet's equipment needs -- and offer best practices to help others in this position be more successful.”

According to ASBPE, the Azbee Awards of Excellence program is “one of the most competitive there is for business-to-business, trade, association, and professional publications. The awards recognize outstanding work by magazines, newsletters, and digital media.”

The national winners will be announced May 18 at the 2017 ASBPE National Conference & Azbee Awards Banquet in St. Petersburg, Florida.
