Transport Topics has received three national awards from the American Society of Business Publication Editors.
ASBPE presented bronze Azbee Awards of Excellence to TT in three categories for its coverage in 2021, honoring TT’s “Wheels of Justice” series for the second year in a row.
Written by TT Senior Reporter Eric Miller, the periodic series spotlights excessive multimillion-dollar “nuclear” jury verdicts against trucking companies and efforts to protect carriers against them. The series won a gold award a year ago in the same Print/Feature Series category.

In the All Content/Technical Article category, Managing Editor of Features Seth Clevenger also won a bronze award for an iTECH cover story, “When Will Trucks Drive Themselves?” The article examined the progress developers of self-driving systems for commercial vehicles are making in their mission to bring that technology to market. A quarterly magazine, iTECH’s mission is to help guide executives make more informed decisions for their organization’s information technology.
TT also debuted its Magazine Event Series in 2021, and its initial effort in that area, “Retool,” won bronze in the Online Webinar category. A collaboration between TT’s marketing and editorial departments, “Retool” is a digital event series that spotlights its supplemental publications, iTECH and Calibrate. Team members recognized on the award included Tara McClelland, Erin Rodgers, Kelley Zimmerman, Brian Kelly, Joe Terry, Dan Ronan, Shehab Moustafa, Joe Howard, Clevenger and Michael Freeze.
The keynote guest for Day One of Retool was Robert Braswell, executive director at American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council. (Transport Topics)
The next installment in the Magazine Event Series, “Optimize,” is coming up on June 7. It is now open for registration.
Earlier this year, TT won seven Mid-Atlantic Regional Azbee Awards.
