The competition is open to all Canadian private carriers, and membership in the PMTC is not a requirement. Judging is conducted by an independent panel and follows established criteria with a focus on the company’s overall safety regime and over the road record.
The 2016 award winners were:
Mid-sized fleet, under 75 power units: John Deere Canada ULC
Large fleet, 75 and over power units: Home Hardware Stores Limited
Most improved fleet: Bridgestone Canada Inc
“The members of the PMTC appreciate the support of Aviva for these private fleet safety awards,” said PMTC president Mike Millian. “The awards are a tangible sign of the commitment of Aviva and the PMTC to truck safety, a commitment that has been part of the PMTC’s mandate since our inception in 1977… The process of applying for one of these awards provides a type of checklist for fleet managers to see what the best in class fleets are doing to maintain their safety programs… Along with Aviva, we at the PMTC congratulate the management and drivers of these fleets. The efforts of everyone involved with these fleets, and many others in the PMTC membership, points to their desire to keep road safety foremost in their operations. All the 2016 award winners deserve our congratulations.”
