Heavy Duty Trucking magazine has announced its 2019 Top 20 Products, highlighting the most innovative, significant, and useful new product announcements from last year. TruckWings was selected as one of the top products.
The winners are published in the February issue. Awards will be presented during individual ceremonies at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta March 18-21.
Each year, HDT editors spend a lot of time going to press conferences and combing through news releases on the latest new products for trucking. At the end of the year, they embark on a process to identify the very best of the past year’s introductions for the Top 20 Products.
Editors sifted through all of the new product announcements that appeared in the magazine or on the Truckinginfo.com website over the course of 2018 to winnow down the list. Products are chosen based on the level of innovation, ability to address significant industry issues, and potential benefit to the bottom line.
HDT editors then consulted with the HDT Editorial Advisory Board, made up of executives and managers representing fleets of a variety of sizes and types, to arrive at the final 20.
Entire vehicles are not included, and products must be commercially available or scheduled to become commercially available this year.
