Nominations Are Open: Transport Topics Spends First Half of 2023 Looking for Heroes

June 22, 2023

Turbulent times have a way of revealing the heroes among us.

From catastrophic flooding to severe ice storms to unstoppable fires, natural disasters have greatly impacted communities across the country this year and created untenable situations for many. Transport Topics recognizes truck drivers and trucking professionals who found the strength to reach out and support their neighbors near and far. 

These everyday heroes don’t wear capes, but you can find them tending to disadvantaged communities, buying food and necessities for impacted families, donating money and time to organizations providing aid, or behind the wheel of a commercial truck distributing essential goods.

Professional truck drivers and other workers in the transportation industry have always performed indispensable jobs, but many have gone above and beyond the call of duty this year to ensure that crucial supplies arrive on time and those in need receive the aid they need.

This year, we're honoring those who endured unprecedented conditions to support communities, near and far, that were devastated by natural disasters.

Nomination period opens June 21, 2023 and closes August 9, 2023.

To ensure that your story is fairly reviewed by our judges, please include specific details about the work your hero has done this year, the specific natural disaster or community relief project, with pictures or references if available, and contact information so that we may reach you for further comment.
