The one award in the trucking industry, specifically aimed at recognising talent and dedication in a truck workshop will be awarded later this year. Nominations are now open for the 2015 Craig Roseneder Award, which recognises technical and maintenance excellence in the trucking industry’s workshops.
Sponsored by Castrol Vecton, the award is open to any individual who works full time as a workshop manager or mechanic in the Australian trucking industry for a trucking company, supplier or commercial workshop. The Craig Roseneder Award is one of the National Trucking Industry Awards.
The CEO of the Australian Trucking Association, Christopher Melham, said the trucking industry is privileged to have exceptionally talented, dedicated professionals in workshops right across the country.
“Fleet maintenance is about more than keeping the engine running. For our Craig Roseneder Award nominees, it’s a passion and a challenge to make sure their fleet is as safe and efficient as possible,” said Melham. “Not only do these people keep their vehicles in top shape, they’re often known to improve on them with safety innovations they’ve conceived and developed in their own time.
“Though highly regarded, these people are often the quiet achiever in the workplace. I encourage members of the industry to help us recognise these exceptional people by nominating them for the 2015 Craig Roseneder Award.”
The winner of the 2015 Craig Roseneder Award will receive a trip to Nashville, USA to attend the American Trucking Associations’ 2016 Technology and Maintenance Council Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition, courtesy of Castrol Vecton.
The prize includes airfares, full registration to the event, premium conference accommodation, partners program (if applicable), AUD $1,500 in spending money, and registration to the 2016 Paccar and Dealer TMC.
All nominations must be received by September 7 2015. Nominees for the Craig Roseneder Award must have at least five years of experience in their field, and self-nominations are not accepted.
The Award will be presented at the Castrol Vecton Awards Dinner on Tuesday 27 October in Melbourne. For tickets to the dinner, go to the TMC Website.
