The Ontario Trucking Association routinely honours truck drivers who make a real difference at their companies, in their industry and within their communities.
OTA has several awards and programs to recognize these individuals and we are beginning to collect a list of nominees from our member carriers. Please don’t delay and nominate a worthy truck driver, or a few, for any of the following:
This is a OTA Road Knight nomination year. To nominate one of your drivers for the 2015-2016 Road Knights Team, fill out this nomination form and send to [email protected].
