The National Private Truck Council (NPTC) recently recognized 18 private fleet truck drivers as National Driver All-Stars.

The 18 all-star drivers demonstrated high performance standards against their peer drivers throughout the country, based on customer service, safety, adherence to company standards, regulatory compliance and community service, NPTC.

The award is co-sponsored by International Trucks/Navistar.

“These drivers embody all the characteristics, skills and attitudes that are the heart of what enables the private fleet to continue to deliver exceptional levels of customer service,” said Gary Petty, NPTC president and CEO. “They are ambassadors, not only for their company, but for the entire private fleet community.

“We are honored to recognize these private fleet drivers for meeting high performance standards in the fields of customer service, safety and compliance.”

NPTC initiated the National Driver All-Stars program in 2009 to recognize those drivers of NPTC fleet member companies based on how they perform against their own internal customer service metrics. Specific measures of the recognition include:
