TORONTO, Ont. — Trucknews.com was named among Canada’s top five best business Web sites at a ceremony in Toronto last night. It was the fourth year in a row for the site to receive top five status at the prestigious Kenneth R. Wilson Memorial Awards, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Trucknews.com’s sister Web site, ctl.ca, home to Canadian Transportation and Logistics,also shared top five honours in the Best Web site category.
Also cracking the top five was James Menzies’ Truck West article, Here to Stay, in the Best Resource/Infrastructure category. Menzies’ story took a look at hybrid technology in commercial truck applications.
Taking home the Gold Award in that same category was a two-part series featured in Canadian Transportation and Logistics. Managing editor Adam Ledlow’s Atlantica: Slow and steady or flat-out stalled? and Atlantica: Gateway to Success gave an overview of the Atlantica concept as well as current and future plans for business expansion and growth in the region.
Motortruck Fleet Executive, another sister publication of Truck News, received a second place nod in the Best Cover category as well. CT&L and Motortruck were the only two transportation magazines to receive gold or silver honours during the 2009 awards show.
Hosting the event was comedian Simon Cotter, and George Stroumboulopoulos, host of the popular CBC late night talk show, The Hour, also made an appearance to dole out a few awards.
