FedEx Drivers Earn Five State Truck Driving Championship Titles
Twenty drivers representing FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) operating companies earned state titles at 2017 Truck Driving Championships held in the states of California, Kentucky, Maine, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and South Dakota, May 19-21.
Through 16 state events in 2017, Team FedEx has had 51 drivers win state titles. The state champions each earned an opportunity to compete in the National Truck Driving Championships in Orlando, Florida, Aug. 8-12.
The state TDCs and the NTDC provide professional truck drivers an opportunity to demonstrate their driving skills and safety expertise. Championships encompass three parts – a challenging driving course, a pre-trip inspection and a written examination which covers vehicle operation and knowledge of federal safety regulations.
In 2016, 174 driving professionals from all 50 states and representing FedEx Express, FedEx Freight and FedEx Ground qualified to compete at the National Truck Driving Championships by winning their respective state’s competition, and driving accident free for at least one year. Four FedEx drivers captured national championship titles, while eight other drivers placed in the top-three at the NTDC.
Next up for Team FedEx is the Alabama TDC, May 26.
