The honor from CTA recognizes Bennett for “…50 plus years in the trucking industry, and for his pioneering role in the development of California’s trucking industry,” Michael D. Campbell, CTA’s CEO/EVP says. “On behalf of CTA, this honor expresses its appreciation for Paul Bennett’s dedication to the development of advanced designs and test methods that have resulted in light weight, efficient, durable, high quality, and cost-effective trailers.”
