NPTC recognizes 2021 National Driver All-Stars

Sept. 28, 2021
16 private-fleet drivers honored for elite performance in service, safety, regulatory compliance, community standards

The National Private Truck Council (NPTC) recently recognized 16 private-fleet truck drivers as National Driver All-Stars.

The council said the honorees demonstrated high performance standards against their peer drivers throughout the country based on customer service, safety, adherence to company standards, regulatory compliance, and community service. The award, co-sponsored by International Truck/Navistar, was presented at a ceremony that took place in conjunction with NPTC’s National Safety Conference earlier this month.

“These drivers embody all the characteristics, skills and attitudes that are the heart of what enables the private fleet to continue to deliver exceptional levels of customer service,” said Gary Petty, NPTC president and CEO. “They are ambassadors, not only for their company, but for the entire private fleet community. We are honored to recognize these private-fleet drivers for meeting high performance standards in the fields of customer service, safety, and compliance.”

NPTC initiated the National Driver All-Stars program in 2009 to recognize drivers of NPTC fleet-member companies based on how they perform against their own internal customer service metrics. Specific measures of the recognition include:

  • Customer service (uniform/appearance; on-time deliveries; attitude/conduct; customer feedback; loading/unloading; cooperation)
  • Safety (number of DOT reportable accidents; number of OSHA reportable injuries; number of traffic violations verified by current MVR)
  • Compliance with company standards (attendance, attendance at safety meetings, training, paperwork, etc.)
  • Regulatory compliance (hours of service, DVIR, MVR, etc.)
  • Community service
