GREENSBORO, N.C. -- If you think you've got the safety fleet in North America, and you're operating at least one Volvo truck, now is the time to put your record to the test.
Volvo Trucks is now accepting entries for its annual Volvo Trucks Safety Award. Michelin America Truck Tires is the co-sponsor of the competition.
Under the rules of the contest, two $25,000 prizes will be awarded to fleets that are deemed to have the safest driving records and top safety programs. One prize will go to fleets that have racked up over 20 million miles and one will be given to fleets that travel less than 20 million miles.
Entry is open to Canadian and US fleets operating at least five Class 8 units, including at least one Volvo tractor. Entrants will be ranked by their accident frequency rates. Participating fleets will also be judged on their accident prevention activities. Entries will be accepted until July 31, 2014, and the winners will be announced in October at the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference & Exhibition.
