2016 Chairman’s Challenge Set to Begin in March

On the heels of one of the most successful years in the history of the FedEx program, the 2016 Chairman’s Challenge will soon begin. The first driving championships hosted by state trucking associations are slated for mid-March. The Chairman’s Challenge concludes with the American Trucking Associations playing host to the National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC) and the National Step Van Driving Championships (NSVDC) Aug. 9-13 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.


The key purpose of the Chairman’s Challenge, a corporate-wide initiative, is to reinforce the FedEx commitment to the safety of its drivers, contractors and couriers – and the motoring public. In addition, NTDC and NSVDC offer an excellent opportunity for drivers to demonstrate their skills and professionalism while promoting the importance of safe driving at all FedEx companies.


Last year, five drivers representing FedEx Corporation operating companies were crowned National Champions in their respective driving classes at the 2015 National Truck Driving Championships. In addition, a FedEx Freight driver was named National Rookie of the Year. All told, a record total of 151 FedEx state champion drivers advanced to the NTDC and NSVDC last year.
