The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all Cana­dian pri­vate car­ri­ers, and mem­ber­ship in the PMTC is not a re­quire­ment. Judg­ing is con­ducted by an in­de­pen­dent panel and fol­lows es­tab­lished cri­te­ria with a fo­cus on the com­pany’s over­all safety regime and it’s over the road record.

“The mem­bers of the PMTC ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port of Aviva for th­ese pri­vate fleet safety awards. The awards are a tan­gi­ble sign of the com­mit­ment of Aviva and the PMTC to truck safety, a com­mit­ment that has been part of the PMTC’S man­date since our in­cep­tion in 1977. The ef­forts of ev­ery­one in­volved with th­ese fleets, and many oth­ers in the PMTC mem­ber­ship, points to their de­sire to keep road safety fore­most in their op­er­a­tions. All of the 2017 award win­ners de­serve our con­grat­u­la­tions,”, said PMTC Pres­i­dent Mike Mil­lian.
