Distributor of the Year features to begin next month

Blogs Lucas Deal June 3, 2014

Reaching June means we are now another month closer to announcing the 2014 Truck Parts & Service Distributor of the Year nominees.

Our nomination process (which is still open, by the way) will conclude, Friday, June 27, and the 2014 finalists will be announced in July. We will follow that later in the month with short Q&A’s about each business on this website, and profiles of each business in Truck Parts & Service magazine starting in August.

But that’s not the only thing we’re working on. This summer and fall also will feature several great articles we hope you can use to help streamline your business and help your customers.

What’s on tap in Truck Parts & Service?

June: Employee health/wellness options (cover), Building your body shop

July: How data tracking can grow your sales (cover); Coolants

August: Stimulating aftermarket involvement (cover) RSD mandates; DOTY finalist profile

September: Conflict Resolution strategies (cover), Critical event recording, DOTY finalist profile
