GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MATT) is partnering with Volvo Trucks to award the 2011 Volvo Trucks Safety Award.
Two winners will be selected based on driving records from the 2010 calendar year. Division 1 is for fleets that annually travelled up to 20 million miles, while Division 2 is for fleets that travelled more than 20 million miles annually. Fleets operating at least five Class 8 tractor units in the US or Canada are eligible, but only fleets operating with at least one Volvo tractor are eligible. Previous Volvo Safety Award winners are not eligible to win.
“Michelin and Volvo Trucks are committed to increasing safety in the trucking industry, and helping fleets comply with the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration,” said Jaye Young, country marketing manager for MATT. “A great way to promote safety is to point out the fleets that are doing things right and encourage others to take note of their practices to improve overall safety.”
The two category award winners will be announced at the American Trucking Associations’ annual Management Conference and Exhibition in October. Both fleets will receive a plaque of recognition and $25,000.
