Ruan is beginning the process of selecting our 2018 Driver of the Year! This professional driver will join the ranks of our 10 previous Drivers of the Year, who exemplify our standards of safety, customer service, dedication, and professionalism. This driver—one out of Ruan’s 4,400 professional drivers—will be honored with a trophy, a cash reward, and the title of 2018 Driver of the Year.

This month, managers across the country are selecting finalists from their operations. From these finalists, each vice president of operations will select Winners’ Circle honorees within their business units. The Winners’ Circle will travel to our headquarters in Des Moines, IA, in July for our much-anticipated Driver and Operation of the Year events. Honorees and their guests will enjoy meeting executive leaders, a corporate tour, opportunities to share feedback with the leadership team and, most importantly, be recognized as the best of the best. And from among the Winners’ Circle, one professional driver will be named our 2018 Driver of the Year.
What does it take to be Ruan’s Driver of the Year?
Any full-time professional truck driver employed for the entire 12-month period from January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2018, who had zero preventable accidents or other violations is eligible for Driver of the Year recognition! The selection committees also take into account awards received, customer service recognition, and testimonials from team members and customers.
Each year, the selection process becomes more and more difficult for everyone involved. All of our professional drivers deserve to be recognized for their commitment, dedication, and safety, but only one can win.
