JDT Trucking, founded with one truck two decades ago by James Davis, won Overdrive’s 2020 Small Fleet Champ competition, announced last Thursday, Aug. 27.

The fleet, based in Central Point, Oregon, hauls construction materials and has 22 drivers. JDT won an oversized championship belt trophy and will be featured in Overdrive and Commercial Carrier Journal this fall.

The competition recognizes fleets that not only have navigated a difficult 2020, but have demonstrated best practices in building a safe, stable business that has grown or positioned itself for growth.

The finalists and the winner were determined by editors from Overdrive and CCJ, who interviewed the nine semi-finalists, featured on CCJ in advance of determination of the final top three. In addition to judges’ consideration of operating data supplied by the entrants, Ansonia Credit Data, which provides credit checking on brokers and other parties in trucking and other industries, ran credit checks on the semi-finalists.
