The nomination period for the 2023 Trucks, Parts, Service Distributor of the Year Award is nearing its conclusion.
After crowning Weldon Parts as winner of the 2022 Distributor of the Year Award at HDAW in January and re-opening our nomination period in April, TPS will close the nomination period for our annual top distributor honor on June 30.
Now in its 22nd year, the Distributor of the Year program remains one of the aftermarket's most coveted and highly sought after awards.
Nominations can be submitted for the rest of the week by anyone in the trucking industry for any independent parts distributor business in North America. The distributors who receive the most nominations during our open submission period will be selected as our 2023 award finalists, who will then be announced in July and profiled on our website this fall.
Finalists will be evaluated on business performance, business innovation, consistent employee and customer training, market expertise, commitment to customer solutions and more. And remember, the Distributor of the Year is not a sales award. Businesses nominated for the award and selected as finalists will be evaluated using a carefully built internal TPS rubric that weights the capabilities of a business based on its size and resources.
"There are so many wonderful businesses in the independent aftermarket and we love getting the chance to profile them and recognize them for their excellence with the Distributor of the Year Award program," says Lucas Deal, TPS Editor and Content Director.
"We also encourage everyone in the trucking industry to share their knowledge with us, and nominate their best partners, clients and employers for the 2023 Distributor of the Year Award. We want to spotlight trucking's best distributors and we know we need your help to do that."
