FedEx Chairman's Challenge
FedEx Drivers Earn 14 State Truck Driving Championship Titles
Through six state events in 2018, Team FedEx has had 27 drivers win state titles. The state champions have each earned an opportunity to compete at the American Trucking Associations’ National Truck Driving Championships and National Step Van Driving Championships (NTDC & NSVDC) Aug. 15-18 in Columbus, Ohio.
The state TDCs along with the NTDC and NSVDC provide professional truck drivers with 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 2017, 173 driving professionals from all 50 states and representing FedEx Express, FedEx Freight and FedEx Ground qualified to compete at the national championships by winning their respective state’s competition, and driving accident-free for at least the previous year.
