Successful Dealer Magazine has named Doggett Freightliner of Arkansas (N. Little Rock location) as North America's 2019 Truck Dealership of the Year (18 wheeler & vocational). This makes for the third year that Doggett Freightliner was named a finalist for this prestigious award (in 2015, in 2017 and 2019).
Doggett has owned and operated its Arkansas stores for only 16 months after acquiring them in 2018. Truck dealerships representing all brands were nominated and judged on criteria including overall success, performance and customer satisfaction. Doggett officials were pleased with achieving first place so quickly after taking over the line, according to the company.
In its seventh year, the Successful Dealer Awards was introduced as a way to honor medium- and heavy-duty truck dealers for their commitment to their communities and their influence within the industry. The award evaluates its nominees based upon the success of their business, customer service response and reputation, community involvement and outreach, civic responsibility, environmental initiatives, staff education and training, marketing and more.
The winner was announced and presented the award on Aug. 22 in Dallas at the Great American Trucking Show (GATS).
