Trucking business operator Carol Single has the chance to scoop two awards at this year’s Australian Trucking Convention, while her husband has also been nominated.

Single has been nominated to receive awards in the National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year and the Outstanding Contribution to the Australian Trucking Industry categories.

Single’s husband and business partner Ian will also complete in the Outstanding Contribution category.

The Singles join a host of other nominees, who will be announced during the Australian Trucking Convention on the Gold Coast in April.

Finalists for the awards were announced today by the Australian Trucking Association (ATA), which hosts the annual event.

ATA Chairman Trevor Martyn says the awards are a crucial part of the industry’s calendar "because they identify and reward the people who have contributed to taking the Australian trucking industry to a higher level of professionalism".

"The National Trucking Industry Awards are an important part of the trucking industry’s effort to promote the commitment and achievement of individuals and organisations within the industry," he says.

"The quality of this year’s finalists is impressive and include some of the most dedicated and committed figures in the industry, all of which deserve to be recognised."

Bill Taylor, Robert Machin and Bruce McCleary will all vie for the National Professional Driver of the Year category, with Single competing against Dianne Carroll from Trans-Help Foundation and Kathy White
from Lighs On The Hill
for the National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year award.
