Private motor truck council of Canada



The Private Fleet Safety Awards program was created by  the PMTC to encourage improved road safety for the general public and promote best practices in private fleet safety management.
The awards recognize the private truck fleets most committed to safety improvement, especially where they exceed National Safety Code requirements. This competition is open to all Canadian private truck fleets. PMTC membership is not a requirement.

The process of applying for one of these awards provides a type of checklist for fleet managers to see what the best in class fleets are doing to maintain their safety programs”, said Mike MIllian, President of PMTC.

“We at the PMTC congratulate the management and drivers of these fleets,” Millian went on to say.  “The effort of everyone involved with these fleets points to their desire to keep road safety foremost in their operations, and their collective efforts pay off."

Aviva is the sponsor of record making this award possible.
