The Manitoba Trucking Association honoured the top drivers in the province with the presentation of the MTA-Custom Truck Sales Industry Excellence Awards yesterday.
This annual award is presented by the Manitoba Trucking Association and Custom Truck Sales Inc. and recognizes transport truck drivers who display superior commitment to safety, customer service and dedication to their industry. Nominations can be made by anyone impacted positively by a driver’s service.
The six winners of the MTA-Custom Truck Sales Industry Excellence Award for 2010 are:
- Jacob Wiebe, Cheval Transport
- Robert Yablonski, Payne Transportation LP
- Donald Lister, Canada Safeway
- Randal Panko, Heartland Transport
- William DeGroot, Arnold Bros. Transport
- Gustav Giesbrecht, YRC Reimer
“The six drivers we honoured today exemplify the dedication, sacrifice and skill required to be an elite driver,” says Tom Payne Jr., President of the Manitoba Trucking Association. “Many recipients current and past have millions of incident-free miles on their record; these drivers are the best of the best when it comes to drivers in Manitoba.”
The six winners of this award receive a plaque commemorating their nomination, a letter of congratulations from Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton, a custom Industry Excellence jacket and a small honorarium.
One of the six winners will be named the Volvo Trucks Manitoba Driver of the Year in June.
The Manitoba Trucking Association exists to develop and maintain a safe and healthy business environment for our industry members.
