TAM Awards

TAM Driver/Company of the Year

The Trucking Association of Massachusetts Driver/Company of the Year Program recognizes an individual or company, whose professionalism and community involvement goes beyond reproach. Their dedication and commitment to not only their company, but also the transportation industry and community in general is something to be recognized.

There are many excellent truck drivers working in the transportation industry and throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as trucking companies in general that do outstanding work.  We are privileged to recognize a truck driver or a company annually for these types of efforts and provide the professional recognition their accomplishments deserve.

The nomination deadline for the 2022 award is November 1. Please complete the nomination submission form below. Include a brief background of the candidate or the company to be considered along with the credentials that you feel warrant the nomination. All nominations will be reviewed by the Executive Board and a decision will be made prior to the end of the year.

Congratulations to Advantage Truck Group, our 2021 Company of the Year!

Advantage Truck Group was named the winner of the Trucking Association of Massachusetts (TAM) Company of the Year Award. TAM executive director Kevin Weeks recognized ATG for its tireless dedication, involvement and professionalism in the transportation industry, and its support of charitable endeavors throughout the community.
