IFDA announced the 26 inductees for the inaugural class of the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame today. Since its inception, IFDA has worked tirelessly with its member companies to promote a culture of safety. In addition to the annual IFDA Truck Driving Championship, this program casts a spotlight on the industry's top drivers for their outstanding records of service and safety. To be eligible for the IFDA Hall of Fame, the driver must have at least 25 years with no chargeable accidents and may not have any moving violations within the previous 5 years prior to nomination.

“We’re proud to honor the exceptional careers and contributions of these hard-working professionals with this new program,” said Mark Allen, President and CEO of IFDA. “We understand that highly skilled drivers are the heart of our industry, ensuring a safe and efficient food supply for professional kitchens across the country.”
