Penske Truck Leasing and the International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) announced they’ve teamed up to promote driver safety. Penske is the leading sponsor and primary vehicle provider for IFDA’s 2009 Food Industry Truck Driving Championship to be held September 11-13, 2009, at the Orange County Convention Center and the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando FL.
This is the only national-level competition held for the food distribution industry. Drivers representing foodservice distributors, foodservice manufacturers with private fleets, retail/wholesale distributors, self-distributing retail supermarket companies, and other types of food companies across North America gather to compete each year in this industry safety event.
Penske is marking its fourth consecutive year sponsoring the event, and the company has signed on as a sponsor for the next two years.
The Food Industry Truck Driving Championship provides an opportunity to demonstrate driver skills and knowledge in three areas and includes a written exam, pre-trip safety inspection, and a behind-the-wheel field course. Visit www.ifdaonline.org for more information.
