The commercial truck industry is vital to our nation's economic well-being, touching nearly every aspect of our lives - from the food we eat and clothes we wear to the lumber for our buildings and homes and the nuts and bolts that hold our cars together. Heavy Duty Trucking is the leader in innovative, effective media services for trucking and its allied industries. Our editorial staff has won more than 100 top journalism awards. Only one award - the Jesse H. Neal - is regarded as the Pulitzer of business publisher. As of 2018, HDT has won 29 Neal awards and 37 Certificates of Merit, along with two Grand Neal Awards, competing against hundreds of other publications represented by members of the B2B communications organization Connectiv. Three editors hold federal Commercial Drivers Licenses and do regular test drives to evaluate new trucks, engines and components.
