PMTC & 3M VEHICLE GRAPHICS DESIGN AWARDS COMPETITION
PMTC is calling for entries for the Annual Vehicle Graphics Design Awards Competition.

The competition is open to all Canadian fleet operators.
Awards are presented in seven categories: Tractor Trailer; Straight Truck; Special Events/Promotion; Night-Time Safety, Light Duty Commercial Truck, Human Element and Identity Fleet Graphics.
“These awards have become a reflection of the positive image of the trucking industry,” says Mike Millian, president, Private Motor Truck Council of Canada. “Through the Vehicle Graphics Design Awards Competition, the PMTC is able to promote the work of fleet operators and graphic houses. It is terrific to be able to provide a forum with which to recognize the efforts of fleets and graphic houses from all across Canada.”
PMTC & CPC LOGISTICS CANADA HALL OF FAME FOR PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS
The Driver Hall of Fame was established during the PMTC’s annual conference in 2002 in order to recognize superior over the road performance of drivers employed by members of the PMTC. As part of PMTC’s 25th anniversary celebrations, each of the drivers who had previously received the Council’s Driver of the Year award were inducted into the Hall of Fame.
"The Hall of Fame will provide a more permanent recognition of the skills and dedication that these drivers bring to their profession than that afforded by an award in a single year," said PMTC president Mike Millian.
CPC Logistics Canada has signed on as the sponsor of record of the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada’s Hall of Fame for Professional Drivers.

PMTC & AVIVA PRIVATE FLEET SAFETY AWARD
The Private Fleet Safety Awards program was created in 1998 by the Private Motor Truck Council of Canada 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 year’s competition is open to all Canadian private truck fleets. PMTC membership is not a requirement, as PMTC wants to recognize outstanding performance throughout the private trucking community.
Aviva has signed on as the sponsor of record of the PMTC's Private Fleet Safety Award.
Fleet safety is everyone’s business and we encourage you to participate in our safety promotion by completing and submitting the entry form right away.
Judging is conducted by an independent panel and follows an established criterion that concentrates on the company's overall safety regime and it's over the road record.
