Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine (HDT) is the The Fleet Business Authority that writes award-winning articles and provides industry-specific information for fleets. Their comprehensive heavy-duty truck news covers everything from equipment, operations, and regulations to environmental issues.
HDT editors are deeply involved in the heavy-duty trucking industry, and they have an impressive understanding of issues that affect fleet operations. Editors constantly have their ear to the ground as they research and learn about new products and innovations happening within the industry. Product announcements are reported in the magazine as often as possible, to assure that fleets know what is available to help them maintain and improve their daily operations.
Every year, HDT honors the development of products that address industry issues by awarding their HDT Top 20 Products award. The HDT Top 20 Products award has been part of the industry for more than 30 years, and in recent years has become a very prestigious award that is limited to only 20 recipients each year. HDT editors discuss product utility, function, benefit to fleets, practicality, etc. and give the nominated products to HDT Fleet Innovators and the HDT Advisory Board for final selection, as it is crucial for fleets to be the actual decision makers about which products will be most beneficial in the industry.
Specific award criteria include products that:
- Are innovative
- Can address an industry issue
- Potentially affect a fleet’s bottom line
