FleetOwner Private Fleet of the Year contest returns

Feb. 22, 2024
The annual awards contest honors the transportation operations of companies whose primary business isn’t trucking. The 2024 FleetOwner Private Fleet of the Year Awards will be presented during the National Private Truck Council’s trade show this April.

FleetOwner is seeking nominations for its annual Private Fleet of the Year Awards, which will be presented at the 2024 National Private Truck Council show this April in Orlando.

FleetOwner editors select winners of the annual awards based on private fleets’ accomplishments, safety records, technology adoption, community outreach, and other factors. Private fleets of all sizes can nominate themselves or be nominated by a driver, customer, or other partners. It’s all about appreciating excellence in trucking by the fleets that keep retail, construction, food service, utility, and other businesses running.

Last year, CRH Americas, AutoZone, and Standard Logistics were honored with the award. Other previous fleet winners include Pacific Gas & Electric, Meijer Logistics, Hillyard, Dot Transportation, Tyson Foods, Safelite, and Frito-Lay. All honored fleets also will be featured in the June 2024 edition of FleetOwner magazine and at FleetOwner.com.

NPTC’s annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition will be held in Orlando this spring, April 21-23. The annual FleetOwner 500: Top Private Fleets, which recognizes the largest of the more than 200,000 companies operating private fleets in the U.S., will be unveiled this April before the conference.

To enter the 2023 FleetOwner Private Fleet of the Year contest, complete this online entry form by March 13. There is no entry fee. Entries will be judged on a private fleet’s operation objectives related to safety culture, performance metrics, community outreach, efficiency initiatives, and how the fleet has overcome any challenges over the past year. All the rules are listed in the survey link below.
