Truckers are the backbone of our country’s economy and always do their utmost to serve their communities. This year, we want to celebrate these unsung heroes for all they do, by giving them a chance to be voted South Africa’s no.1 trucker and win an amazing cash prize!
#ThankYouTrucker 2021 was an incredible success and saw us receive a myriad of inspiring entries about our country’s esteemed drivers! This success motivated IVECO South Africa to once again partner with the Road Freight Association (RFA) to find South Africa’s favourite trucker in #ThankYouTrucker 2022!
#ThankYouTrucker is an initiative aimed at shining the spotlight on the unsung heroes of our country and within the road freight industry: the drivers. We believe that these incredible men and women deserve to be celebrated for all that they do every day, which was the inspiration behind the #ThankYouTrucker initiative. We are encouraging freight company owners and fleet managers/operators to show their gratitude for hard-working and outstanding drivers in their companies by nominating them for #ThankYouTrucker – and once the entries are in, South Africa will vote for their favourite trucker and award them an amazing life-changing cash prize!
Throughout the many hardships this country has faced, our dedicated truckers have persevered and ensured that the road freight industry – which is vital to South Africa’s transport of goods – continued serving the people. These are the people who ensure that the critical delivery of everyday goods is met, sometime even putting their lives on the line to get the job done. “Trucking is the backbone of domestic supply chains and without trucks, our economy stops,” says Martin Liebenberg, Managing Director of IVECO SA. “Despite the war in Ukraine, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, unrest, natural and national disasters, massive fuel price hikes and sporadic supply chain disruptions, our truck drivers continue to deliver what we need every day and go the extra mile. Through the #ThankYouTrucker campaign, IVECO SA and the RFA want to honour and celebrate the great work and efforts of our nation’s most exceptional drivers.”
These drivers are the men and women who often go above and beyond the call of duty, sacrificing their time and effort to ensure the job gets done to the best of their abilities. They are passionate about their work, caring, trustworthy, dependable individuals who are always willing to lend a helping hand, and they motivate their colleagues to be and do their best, as well. Previous entries received highlighted the outstanding characteristics of South Africa’s best drivers and showed us how amazing our local truckers truly are.
