Microlise Driver of the Year opens for nominations

Nottingham, UK: Microlise begins its search for the UK’s best truck driver.

Now in its eighth year, the event shortlists drivers by analysing a year’s worth of Microlise telematics performance data to reveal the most talented short, medium, and long-distance drivers.
The data is anonymised and analysed in conjunction with the University of Nottingham’s Advanced Data Analytics Centre, to identify the best performing drivers.
Five additional nomination-based categories, Young Driver, Most Improved, Lifetime Achievement, Driver Hero and Extra Mile are also open to the entire driver community, regardless of whether Microlise telematics technology is used.

Drivers and transport managers are invited to nominate their colleagues with employers then being asked to support the nomination and provide further qualitative evidence that may result in a driver being named as a winner.
An independent panel of industry experts will shortlist three drivers in each category and oversee the awards process.
“These are one of the most comprehensive awards for drivers of heavy commercial vehicles and is one of our favourite projects of the year as it allows us to celebrate the tremendous contribution drivers make to the transport industry and to our economy as a whole. Our data science team uses the latest technology to evaluate data from hundreds of thousands of anonymous drivers, to help us to understand who is the country’s best driver,” Nadeem Raza, chief executive, Microlise, said.
