Nominate your Tanker Driver of the Year 2023

UKIFDA has announced that entries are open for nominations for the Driver of the Year 2023 award, sponsored by OAMPS, which recognises and rewards the very best of our industry’s driving talent. The winner will be announced at the UKIFDA Show Dinner, sponsored by Mabanaft, which rounds off the UKIFDA Show & Conference 2023 taking place on 10 May 2023 at the CBS Arena in Coventry.

Entries are open for nominations for the UKIFDA Driver of the Year 2023 award sponsored by OAMPS

Driver of the Year entries can be submitted by UKIFDA Member companies regardless of size or scale from anywhere in the UK and Ireland, and the closing date for entries is 30 March 2023.

Urging people to nominate their driving heroes, UKIFDA CEO Ken Cronin explains what the assessment team is looking for: “It’s all about finding those superstars of our industry. Maybe one of your drivers has helped a customer or colleague in need, demonstrated an especially high level of professionalism or made a positive impact in terms of best practice, efficiency or brilliant customer care – we want to hear from you!”

“We look forward to receiving and reading the details of all the great drivers nominated for this year’s award, every one of which does their industry proud.”

The industry’s best tanker drivers

Karl Jones, account director of OAMPS, sponsor of this prestigious award, comments: “For the 22nd year running, we are delighted to be embarking on the search to find the industry’s best tanker drivers across the UK and Ireland and hear their inspirational stories.

“We love the fact this award celebrates and shines a light on how much more these individuals deliver, day in and day out, over and above the fuel deliveries themselves, how they manage and mitigate risk for customers and colleagues alike through their continued efforts to practise and promote professionalism at all times.
