Dietmar Bussler, who has been a professional driver at KUBE & KUBENZ since May 1999, was awarded the Diploma of Honour by the International Road Transport Union. It is given each year to professional drivers who have distinguished themselves due to their achievements in the national and international road transport.
The requirements for the Diploma of Honour include having continuously been in their profession for at least 20 years as well as employment of at least five years with the company that nominated them.
In addition, they have to have driven a minimum of one million kilometers on national or transnational roads without having caused, by their own fault, any serious road traffic accidents with bodily harm during the past 20 years. They also may not have committed any serious violations of traffic, customs or administrative regulations.
KUBE & KUBENZ is proud of this award, which is now held by seven drivers in the team, and would like to take this opportunity to thank all colleagues. “This Diploma of Honour is an important and desirable award for all professional drivers, for our company as well as for the chemical logistics industry,” said Managing Director Michael Kubenz on the occasion of the award..
In 2015, a total of 1,214 professional drivers from 28 countries received the IRU’s Diploma of Honour. Germany came first among them with 168 drivers being awarded. It was closely followed by Belarus with 123 drivers, the Czech Republic with 119 drivers and Belgium with 103 drivers. On behalf of the IRU, the German Forwarders and Logistics Association (DSLV) presented the KUBE & KUBENZ driver with the corresponding diploma, an emblem and a silver badge of honour.
