Volvo seeks safest North American fleets
Feb 27, 2013 10:37 AM
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.
The company will again join Michelin in sponsoring the safety award, which highlights the importance of highway safety for the trucking industry and the motoring public.
This award is open to all US 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 accident prevention activities.
The deadline for entry is July 31, 2013. Winners of the award will be announced during the American Trucking Associationsí Management Conference & Exhibition in October 2013. Two grand prizes will be awarded to 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.
Complete rules and entry forms are available at www.volvotrucks.us.com/safetyaward.
