Several heavy duty fleets were recognized and six took the top honors for sustainability and efficiency at the 2016 Fleet Technology Expo at an Oct. 19 ceremony in Schaumburg, Ill.

The awards recognized fleets that have made significant contributions to environmental sustainability and fleet efficiencies in the heavy duty commercial vehicle industry.

Nominees for the awards used alternative fuels, new technologies, software and training to gain efficiency and maintain a level of sustainability.

James Cade of Ruan Transportation Management, John King of the City of Columbus, and Jeffery Bonnema of Ozinga Bros were all given the top honors for the Heavy Duty Sustainability award.

In the Heavy Duty Efficiency category, Richard Knight of Knight Waste Services, Myles Kuperus of Kuperus Trucking and Bobby Jones of Duquesne Light Company were the three award winners.

Now in its second year, the Fleet Technology Expo is an event hosted by Heavy Duty Trucking, Automotive Fleet and Green Fleet magazines for all fleet types, focusing on ways to improve operational efficiencies. The conference features educational sessions covering topics like telematics, alternative fuels equipment and strategies for streamlining fleet operations.
