As a result of overwhelming demand and the huge successes of the inaugural competition in 2021, #ThankYouTrucker is back! Following the hotly contested inaugural competition, IVECO SA, in partnership with the Road Freight Association (RFA), have announced details of the 2022 search for the best trucker in South Africa.
“Trucking is the backbone of domestic supply chains and without trucks, our economy stops,” says Martin Liebenberg, Managing Director of IVECO SA. “Despite the war in Ukraine, the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, unrest, natural and national disasters, massive fuel price hikes and sporadic supply chain disruptions, our truck drivers continue to deliver what we need every day and go the extra mile. Through the #ThankYouTrucker campaign, IVECO SA and the RFA want to honour and celebrate the great work and efforts of our nation’s most exceptional drivers.”
How to Enter
#ThankYouTrucker is looking for the most extraordinary freight driver: a remarkable individual who goes above and beyond the call of duty. This driver is helpful, trustworthy, dependable, caring and passionate about his/her career in trucking.
Fleet owners and managers can nominate any number of drivers they believe meet the criteria. Entries open on 11 June and close on 3 September 2022.
R50 000 will be awarded to the winning driver. The driver in second place will win R10 000, with the third placed driver receiving R5 000.

“#ThankYouTrucker is a unique opportunity for the industry to thank truck drivers for their commitment, professionalism, tireless efforts and dedication to a tough job. We look forward to receiving nominations for this year’s competition,” says Gavin Kelly, Chief Executive of The Road Freight Association.
