The COVID-19 pandemic and national lockdown put a stop to our plans last year, but our life-changing Hollard Highway Heroes competition for truck drivers is back – in an exciting new format (it’s the new normal after all).

Hollard Trucking wants to identify and richly reward the best truck drivers in the country, so we’re thrilled to announce that entries for the 2021 contest are officially open, with cool cash prizes up for grabs throughout the six-month competition period from May to October.

This year, Hollard Highway Heroes is open exclusively to Hollard Risk Services Bureau clients, with five categories: Tautliners, Tankers, Tippers, Flatdecks and Reefers.

Truck drivers are a diverse lot, and we particularly look forward to seeing more outstanding women truck drivers entering and standing a fair chance of walking away with cash and accolades.

Using telematics, our competitors will be monitored against the parameters of speed, excessive driving during the day and at night, and total distance travelled.

Driving well will put them in line to bag not only a R5 000 monthly prize per category, but also to scoop the considerable grand prize of R50 000, awarded to our overall winning Hollard Highway Hero at the end of the competition.

Of course, you don’t have to be in the driving seat to benefit!

Promoting and rewarding better truck driving leads to safer roads, lower running costs, less maintenance and operational downtime, and reduced accidents and claims, creating the win-win-win for drivers, fleet owners, brokers – and, of course, Hollard Insure.

Winners will be announced in the first week of every month over the course of the competition. So we can reward as many deserving drivers as possible, each trucker can only win one monthly category prize in the six months.

Prize-giving ceremonies will be held at fleet owners’ own premises, for your own safety and that of your drivers. (Details of the final grand prize handover will follow in due course.)

Best of all, it’s super easy to participate. With your consent, Hollard Risk Services Bureau clients will be entered into the competition automatically – see your entry form attached with this letter.

If you prefer not to participate, you can easily opt-out by simply replying to this email.
