The highly-respected Craig Rosender Award is down to three with the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) today announcing this year’s three award finalists.

The award recognises technical and maintenance excellence in the trucking industry’s workshops and will be announced at this month’s ATA/ARTSA Technical and Maintenance Conference.

The three finalists for the 2017 award are:

  • Dale Hedley (Vellex, NSW)
  • Chris Blanchard (Herb Blanchard Haulage, Queensland)
  • Mark Collins (Frasers Livestock Transport, Queensland)

ATA Chair Geoff Crouch says Dale, Chris and Mark were selected by the judging panel for their technical skill, aptitude and dedication to the industry.

“Since 1998 the ATA has recognised the unsung heroes who keep Australia’s trucks on the road,”

“There are no finer examples than our three 2017 finalists.

“They are all role models, outstanding in their field and demonstrating high levels of safety, expertise and professionalism.”

The 2017 Craig Roseneder Award will be presented at the Castrol Vecton Awards on the 17th of October.

This winner will receive a fully paid trip to Atlanta to attend the US Technology and Maintenance Council’s 2018 Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibition including $1,500 spending money.
