TORONTO, Ont. — Cancom Tracking has signed on as the sponsor of record of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada’s Hall of Fame for professional drivers.
The Hall of Fame was established during the PMTC’s annual conference in 2002 in order to recognize superior over the road performance of drivers employed by members of the PMTC. As part of PMTC’s 25th anniversary celebrations, all 11 drivers who had previously received the Council’s Driver of the Year award were inducted into the Hall of Fame.
"The Hall of Fame will provide a more permanent recognition of the skills and dedication that these drivers bring to their profession than that afforded by an award in a single year," said PMTC president Bruce Richards.
The Hall of Fame will reside in cyber-space on the PMTC website (www.pmtc.ca). Initial design work has been completed and the Hall can be viewed by anyone visiting the PMTC website.
"Cancom understands the importance of drivers within the industry. Not only in the most obvious sense but also in all the other areas in which drivers play a key part. They are the ambassadors of the company, the information gatherers, and the ones who can make or break a delivery," said Mike Ham, Vice President of Cancom Tracking .
The PMTC Safety Committee established the criteria for nomination into the Hall of Fame, and nomination forms will be circulated to all members of the PMTC. A selection committee will review nominations and induction will take place during the PMTC’s annual conference.
