A Record Number of Drivers Inducted to the 2023 Class of the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame

Fort Worth, Texas – Yesterday evening, IFDA inducted the 2023 class of its Truck Driver Hall of Fame. The 2023 class is the largest in IFDA’s history. It includes 87 drivers from 13 companies, 10 of the professionals have been driving for more than 40 years, and one driver has 48 years of service. The class includes the first female inductee in the history of IFDA’s Truck Driver Hall of Fame.

“The IFDA Hall of Fame is a way for us to recognize and celebrate the outstanding contributions of our members,” said Mark S. Allen, President and CEO of IFDA. “This year’s class is truly deserving of this honor, and we are proud to have them as part of our community.”

Over 135,000 foodservice distribution drivers are currently on the road, but only those with the best safety records and longevity of service qualify for the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame. To be eligible, the driver must have at least 25 years of employment with an IFDA member company with no chargeable accidents during that timeframe and may not have any moving violations within the last five years.
