Third-generation driver and owner of Kendall Trucking & Co Glen “Yogi” Kendall has been awarded one of four prizes in the 2019 National Transport Insurance (NTI) Faces of Transport competition.

The competition honours four hard-working individuals in transport each year and is aimed at helping raise industry standards and improve road safety.

Kerri Connors, a Training and Compliance Specialist at Caltas based in Tasmania, will join WA-based Mr Kendall in being inducted into NTI’s Hall of Fame for their long-standing commitment to the industry.

Ms Connors “received the top gong for leading the way for women aspiring to be in the truck industry,” NTI said.

Two more awards were taken out by Queenslanders Jonathon Lowien, who won Best on Ground for his outstanding ability as a young driver, and Georgia Easton, who was awarded Best Industry Representative.

NTI received more than 2000 nominations for the 1 of 4 Faces of Transport awards.

Mr Kendall starred in The Discovery Channel’s Outback Truckers and now live-streams humorous stories to more than 60,000 Facebook followers from his big rig.

He is pushing for better quality control for entry-level truck drivers.
