The COVID-19 pandemic and national lockdown have put a stop to many things we love dearly. Among them, we’re afraid, is the 2020 edition of our Hollard Highway Heroes competition.

We recognise that our country’s truck drivers are carrying on with their important work in the face of the pandemic, ferrying the goods we need to all corners of our country, and for that, they are our heroes more than ever. Without them, our country would suffer even more.

Rewarding truck-driving excellence!

Our annual inspirational Hollard Highway Heroes competition for truck drivers was sadly one of the myriad activities across the country halted by the COVID-19 pandemic and resultant restrictions in 2020.

However, these courageous essential workers continued with their vital work in the face of the pandemic, and we’re beyond thrilled to announce that our life-changing contest is back this year, in a slightly pared-down but exciting new format.

Without our heroes on the highways, COVID-19 would have had an even greater impact on our country’s economy, and we want to salute and richly reward them for their efforts.

This year, Hollard Highway Heroes is open exclusively to Hollard Risk Services Bureau clients in five categories: Tautliners, Tankers, Tippers, Flatdecks and Reefers. The competition will run over six months, from May to October 2021.

With a R5 000 monthly prize for the best driver in each category, and a significant grand prize of R50 000 for our overall winning
Hollard Highway Hero at the end of the competition, there’s a lot more to gain than just the prestigious title of Hollard Highway Hero!

We’re particularly looking forward to seeing more outstanding women truck drivers entering and standing a fair chance of walking away with cash and accolades.

Entries are now open and it’s super easy to participate. With their consent, Hollard Risk Services Bureau clients will be entered into the competition automatically. (If they prefer not to participate they can easily opt out.) Don’t hesitate to contact your Hollard representative – your broker consultant or area sales manager – if you have any queries about the competition.

Meanwhile, of course, we continue to reward our highway heroes through our Hollard Trucking Driver Rewards Card Programme, with card-holding drivers able to earn hundreds of rands every month simply for driving well.

Fleet owners benefit

Participation in Highway Heroes requires drivers to internalise good driving habits. We’ve found that not only do participants improve their driving, they continue to drive that way long after the competition has ended.

This results in lower fuel and maintenance costs, as well as fewer accidents and insurance claims.

Non-participating drivers benefit

We’ve discovered, to our delight, that they’re inspired by colleagues who have entered Highway Heroes, and they emulate them.

Hollard benefits

Of course, because our customers are able to reduce their risk and we consequently have fewer insurance claims to process.

You and I both benefit

Because at least 80% of South Africans are active road users (as drivers, passengers or pedestrians), anything that improves safety on our roads – as Hollard Highway Heroes undoubtedly does – works for all of us
