Volvo Trucks is searching for the safest fleets in North America to recognize them with the fifth annual Volvo Trucks Safety Award, a $25,000 prize co-sponsored by Michelin to be used toward the safety-related activities of the two fleets that win.
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, 2013. 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.
