2009 Fleet of the Year Awards

Drumroll, please, and let's lift this curtain! On the following pages, Fleet Owner reveals this year's winners of its Fleet of the Year Awards

Drumroll, please, and let's lift this curtain! On the following pages, Fleet Owner reveals this year's winners of its Fleet of the Year Awards — one each from the for-hire, private and vocational segments of trucking. Each honoree has been selected by the editors in recognition of the innovative management techniques they have implemented to benefit their operations.

We recognize each of these winning fleets for achievements that fully reveal excellence in management. That's why nominations are not sought for these awards nor are they linked to any industry association or influenced by any outside group.

Fleet Owner editors keep their eyes peeled for candidates as they cover trucking throughout the year. In the fall, the editors confer to determine the trucking operations to be honored here.

The challenges facing for-hire, private and vocational fleets may vary widely, but all our honorees exemplify the mark of leadership we are proud to salute with Fleet Owner's 8th annual Fleet of the Year Awards: significant innovation in truck fleet management.
