KING CITY, Ont. – It’s the most colourful awards program in the industry and it attracts entries from both private and for-hire fleets. The most visually stunning fleet graphics were awarded for the 25th year Friday at the Private Motor Truck Council’s Annual General Meeting and Conference.
The 2010 Vehicle Graphics Design competition is sponsored by the PMTCO and 3M Canada and includes seven categories: Tractor-Trailer; Straight Truck; Special Events/Promotion; Night-Time Safety; Light-Duty Commercial Truck; Human Interest; and Identity Fleet.

Our thanks to all the participants and in particular to 3M Canada who make this annual event possible.”
