Trucks, Parts, Service is thrilled to open the nomination programs for our Distributor of the Year and Successful Dealer Awards.
Our TPS Distributor of the Year program is back for its 20th year. As the independent aftermarket’s highest honor, the Distributor of the Year program seeks to honor independent aftermarket distributor operations who have risen to the top of their industry through hard work and dedication to their customers and the trucking industry.
The Successful Dealer Award program will crown its ninth winner in 2021. Designed to mirror the DOTY program, the Successful Dealer Award shines a light on medium- and heavy-duty truck dealers who are a positive influence on our industry, as well as their customers, employees and communities.
Finalists for both awards are selected through industry participation. Anyone in trucking industry is encouraged to nominate a distributor or dealer for our two awards, and with the exception of our 2020 award winners — Cook Brothers Truck Parts for the DOTY award; Advantage Truck Group for the Successful Dealer Award — any business in the independent aftermarket or dealer channel is eligible to be nominated and receive the Distributor of the Year or Successful Dealer Award, respectively. This includes prior year winners and finalists. Last year’s TPS Distributor of the Year program included four prior finalists and three winners, while the list of 2020 Successful Dealer Award finalists included two dealers who also had been finalists before.
Additionally, Trucks, Parts, Service encourages members of the aftermarket and dealer channels to nominate their employers, respected competitors or acquaintances they believe are deserving of recognition.
The Distributor of the Year and Successful Dealer Awards are not sales awards, nor are they lifetime achievement accolades. Both awards look to recognize businesses that are on the leading edge of their industry today. Businesses who are evolving and growing to remain trusted, indispensable partners to their customers and essential to the movement of the North American economy.
So please, don't delay. Nominate a business for our Distributor of the Year and Successful Dealer Awards today!
