Commercial Carrier Journal’s Innovator of the Year award recognizes trucking operations that have demonstrated true innovation in trucking management. The editors of CCJ will select finalists, one of which will be named Innovator of the Year and featured in a CCJ cover story. Other finalists will be featured monthly throughout the year.
Rules and criteria
CCJ editors will assess each nominee in light of the degree of innovation, results achieved and the trucking operation’s available resources. Judging will be based on the information provided on the nomination form, interviews with key personnel, discussions with professional references and publicly available information and databases. Decisions rest with the editors of CCJ and are final.
The competition is open to all North American trucking fleets, private or for-hire, operating equipment and in Classes 3-8 that:
• Own and/or operate at least 10 power units
• Have been in operation at least 5 years
• Possess a satisfactory safety rating if rated by FMCSA. (Unrated fleets may be asked to provide evidence of safety fitness.)
Information submitted on this form is subject to verification. Operations tentatively selected as finalists may be subject to further screening.
