TORONTO, Ont. – The deadline to nominate this year’s Canadian Fleet Maintenance Manager of the Year is just over one week away and organizers are encouraging fleets across the country to nominate a maintenance manager that they believe should be honoured with the award.
This award is presented to a fleet maintenance manager in recognition of their outstanding performance and contribution to the heavy-duty trucking industry. The nominated individual is chosen based on criteria such as scheduled maintenance programs, in-house training initiatives and contributions to the industry and community in general. Those nominated must have their fleet located in Canada, they must have at least 25 Class 8 vehicles in their fleet and at least 80% of the fleet’s repairs must be done at its own facilities. Those nominated must also have a minimum of five years of fleet maintenance experience, three of which must be as a full-time fleet maintenance manager, superintendent or director.
The award is presented by Volvo, though judging is done by an independent committee of past winners and trade professionals.
