NTTC announces new award for tank truck drivers
National Tank Truck Carriers’ Safety Committee is developing a new recognition program for the nation’s tank truck drivers. The announcement came during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, and NTTC is excited to take part in honoring the 3.1 million individuals who hold truck driving jobs in the United States.
The Professional Tank Truck Driver of the Year Award will go to one extraordinary tank truck driver or independent contractor who provides reliable and safe transportation of liquid and dry bulk commodities for the industry.
“I am thrilled that the NTTC is establishing a first-rate program to honor our tank truck drivers particularly during National Truck Driver Appreciation Week,” said Hans Schaupp, NTTC chairman. “Our industry plays a critical role in the North American economy and we simply could not achieve our admirable service and safety records without the dedication and commitment of our professional driver corps. This new program offers our membership an excellent forum to show our gratitude to the professional men and women in our tractors."
The first recipient of the Professional Tank Truck Driver of the Year Award will be announced at the NTTC’s annual meeting in April, 2013.
