The outbreak of the corona virus has an enormous impact on society as a whole, but certainly also on the Logistics and Transport sector. For that reason, the start of both the TVM Awards campaign and the NK Safest Chauffeur competition had already been postponed until further notice.
TVM moves NK
In view of the current situation, TVM has decided to postpone the NK Safest Chauffeur to 2021. The planned event in Assen on September 26, 2020 will also be canceled.
The two other TVM Awards (Veilig Transport and Ridder 2020) were still awarded to a company and a driver respectively who have distinguished themselves in the field of safety.
The presentation took place on a small scale and was shared via social media. In this way, in these difficult times, appreciation could still be shown to drivers and (transport) entrepreneurs.
October 11 was the last day to nominate a candidate for the TVM Awards Knight 2020 and Safe Transport.
Hero action A28 near Leusden
Tommy Heineman from Alphen aan den Rijn won the TVM Award Knight 2020. The professional driver receives the title for a heroic action that he performed earlier this year on the A28 near Leusden. Tommy quietly brought the car of an unwell woman to a stop against the crash barrier in his truck.
GVT Group of Logistics wins the TVM Award Safe Transport! The Brabant family business has invested heavily in the GVT Academy in recent years. Employees, including some 500 professional drivers, are trained and trained in its own training center. Partly because of this initiative and the overall safety culture within the company, GVT Group of Logistics was nominated for the TVM Award Safe Transport.
