ATA CEO Ben Maguire has extended the time so that all state and territory associations and trucking operators could nominate exceptional members of the trucking industry.

“We have had an encouraging number of expressions of interest as well as enquiries. We want to ensure that everyone has the additional time to consider and nominate deserving candidates for all categories of the honour roll in 2017,” Mr Maguire said.

The awards open for nominations are:

  • Outstanding Contribution to the Trucking Industry

“These awards recognise people and businesses who make a significant and positive impact to the trucking industry. The ATA wants to ensure that everyone that makes such an impact to our industry has the opportunity to be recognised,” Mr Maguire said.

The awards will be presented at Trucking Australia 2017 21-23 June, at the Darwin Convention Centre during the Gala Dinner on the Foundation Sponsors Day.

The Foundation Sponsors Day celebrates and recognises the Foundation Sponsors of the ATA and will take place on June 23 2017.
