The IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame honors the exceptional careers and contributions of our industry's hard-working professional drivers by casting a spotlight on their outstanding records of service and safety.
This is your company’s opportunity to celebrate and honor your drivers and let them know just how much their tireless commitment to excellence means to the foodservice distribution industry. Being inducted into the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame
is a lifetime honor. It doesn't begin and end with a simple recognition, rather our winners will be part of the IFDA community and celebrated throughout the year.
There are over 130,000 foodservice distribution drivers currently on the road, but only those with the best safety records and longevity of service are eligible 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 over that timeframe. They may not have any moving violations within the five years before the nomination.
Winners will be honored at the IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference, the industry's premier event, October 26-28 at the Tampa Convention Center.
To nominate a deserving individual who fits the criteria,
please complete and submit the nomination application
online by Tuesday, March 31
. Winners and Nominators will be notified in mid-April.
