In an effort to curb the driver shortage and create immediate jobs for transitioning military personnel, the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring Our Heroes, Kenworth, and FASTPORT joined together to present the 2016 Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award and a Kenworth T-680, to a deserving veteran who enters the trucking industry.
The search for America’s top military rookie driver highlights both for veterans and all Americans the support from leading manufacturers and service providers that enhance the safety and comfort of the 3.5 million professional truck drivers while performing their duties — and provide an incredible head start to one veteran's entrepreneurial career.
The 2016 Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award will be presented on December 16 to one of three veteran finalists:
- Troy Davidson, Warner Enterprises
- Russell Hardy, Trimac Transportation
- Kevin Scott, TMC Transportation
