IFDA Truck Driving Championship
This competition tests drivers on many levels including their skill behind the wheel, knowledge of safety rules and regulations, and ability to spot safety hazards during a pre-trip inspection. Reward your best drivers and take your company's safety program to the next level by participating in this premier food industry event.
2013 IFDA Truck Driving Championship
The championship kicks off with a written exam on Friday evening, followed by a pre-trip inspection and field course challenge on Saturday. Saturday evening and Sunday provide free time where drivers and their family members can take in the sights in Orlando. The event concludes Sunday evening at a gala awards dinner where driver accomplishments are celebrated.
All of these elements make for a very exciting weekend for drivers and their families, as well as for company management. This is also a “kid friendly” event and children of all ages are welcome to attend the competition and the gala awards dinner.
Consider supporting this year's competition as a judge.
We welcome management participation as judges to score the truck drivers during the pre-trip inspection and field course portions of the competition. This is the great way to be involved in the event, meet other transportation professionals, and support your drivers. Judge attendance is complementary and you do not have to have a driver in the competition in order to be considered for a judge role. To be considered for a judge role, contact IFDA at (703) 532-9400 prior to sending in a Judge Registration Form.
