With more than three decades’ experience in the industry, Perry Mandera owns and operates the Northlake, Illinois-based transportation solutions firm The Custom Companies, Inc. In June 2016, Perry Mandera’s business participated in the Illinois Professional Truck Driving Championship, an annual family-friendly event that welcomes truck drivers, truck enthusiasts, and customers alike.

Designed to promote truck-driver safety, the competition recognizes the safest commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers throughout Illinois. The championship features nine equipment classes. Participation is restricted to CMV drivers with an accident-free record for 12 months prior and who meet medical qualifications. Additional qualifications included a minimum of 1,200 hours of annual driving, at least 12 months employment in the trucking industry, and employment with a company affiliated with the American Trucking Association (ATA).

The 2016 Illinois Professional Truck Driving Championship took place June 10-11 at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles. For this event, a no-exceptions-or-waivers policy was added to the accident-free requirement. Previously, exceptions had been allowed for accidents wherein the driver was parked legally or stopped at a traffic light or signal.
