Pioneer Carrier Award

The North Dakota Motor Carriers Association’s Pioneer Carrier Award is this highest honor award by NDMCA and akin to a life time achievement award. Since 1957 this distinction has been bestowed upon 54 individuals. According to the September 1957 issue of Rolling Along, the Pioneer Carrier Award was developed to recognize the pioneers of the trucking industry in ND who contributed greatly to making motor transportation the vital industry that it is today. As the trucking industry has evolved, the Pioneer Carrier Award continues to recognize individuals who have made a sustained effort to contribute to the trucking industry throughout their career.
