The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada and Aviva Canada announced awards for private fleet safety during the PMTC’s annual conference on June 17th of 2021.

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 2021 award winners were: 

Mid-Sized Fleet, under 75 Power Units: John Deere Canada ULC. 

Large Fleet, 75 and over Power Units: Linde Canada Inc. (formerly Praxair) 

“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 process of applying for one of these awards provides a checklist for fleet managers to see what the best in class fleets are doing to maintain their safety programs. Even if you do not believe you will win an award, there is an immense benefit to going through the process of entering”, said PMTC President Mike Millian.

“Along with Aviva, we at the PMTC congratulate the management and drivers of these fleets,” Millian went on to say.  “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 2021 award winners and applicants deserve our congratulations.”

Millian also expressed the PMTC’s appreciation to Aviva for making these awards possible, saying that “Aviva is an example of a company that promotes and supports the safe operation of truck fleets –  we, along with the trucking community, appreciate their involvement and support.”
