Nominations for the National Trucking Industry Awards are now open, rewarding those who are making the trucking industry a better place to work and celebrating the inspiring achievements of committed individuals and organisations.
“Trucking plays a crucial role in the lives of all Australians and our economy. This has been made particularly evident in the last 18 months in our COVID-19 response,” said David Smith, ATA Chair. “Trucks supply every community and are connected to every industry, from construction to retail and agriculture. It is important we recognise the outstanding businesses and individuals whose actions inspire others and make a positive impact.”
Nominations are now open in the following categories:
- Outstanding Contribution to the Trucking Industry
- National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year
- National Professional Driver of the Year
- National Training Excellence Award
- Craig Roseneder Award for Technical and Maintenance Excellence
The national award program will also name the winners of the TruckSafe John Kelly Memorial Award, Don Watson Memorial Award and Castrol Vecton Industry Achievement Award, those selected from a range of exceptional people or organisations who do not need to nominate to be considered.
The award winners will be announced at the ATA’s Trucking Australia conference, held from 29 September to 1 October at the Gold Coast.
“While traditionally a feature of the ATA Technology and Maintenance Conference, this year we have made the decision to include the presentation of the Craig Roseneder and Castrol Vecton Industry Achievement awards at Trucking Australia to ensure our finalists and award winners receive the full fanfare and recognition they deserve,” said David.
“These awards are about celebrating those who work behind the scenes or go above and beyond to keep Australia moving. I have no doubt that all of us know someone deserving of one of these awards, and I invite all of industry to celebrate excellence by nominating someone great.”
