How We Select Driver of the Year
MT's Driver of the Year award is designed to recognize and honor our drivers who have demonstrated superior professionalism, excellence in safety, and have dedicated their time and efforts in all around service to Montgomery Transport and our customers. The Driver of the Month is selected from the fleet’s top performers each month. A Driver of the Month committee, consisting of safety and senior management, reviews the list of top performing drivers and puts them to a vote. The driver with the most votes is deemed Driver of the Month. Each month’s driver will become a candidate for Driver of the Year that will be chosen at the beginning of the following year once scores are finalized.
Driver of the Year will be provided a beautiful, custom black tractor for daily company use!
