Showcasing Your Commitment to Excellence

Since its launch in May 2005, the MVP has recognized hundreds of distributors, manufacturers and upfitters for successfully implementing specified business standards and processes, and for taking the necessary steps to comply with applicable government regulations. Suppliers and upfitters that have achieved MVP status are identifiable to fleet managers and truck dealers as having achieved a higher commitment to excellence by their effective use of safety and quality standards.

Endorsed by NAFA Fleet Management Association

NAFA Logo_0811NAFA has recognized the value of the NTEA MVP and has officially endorsed the program for the betterment of the industry. The NTEA MVP provides a visible designation for truck equipment manufacturers and distributors that have implemented specific business and quality standards and process, and have taken significant steps to comply with certain applicable federal regulations.

Attention New MVP Applicants and Renewals

In keeping with the NTEA’s goal to continuously increase the value of the MVP, the Association periodically expands program standards to include more stringent requirements.

PLEASE NOTE: The latest refinement makes the Educational Criterion required instead of optional for all companies applying for or renewing MVP status on or after July 1, 2013.

Every MVP member must provide documentation of these upgraded criteria as their status comes up for renewal (every three years). This ensures MVP businesses continuously strive to maintain a commitment to professionalism, industry knowledge and high performance standards.

The following applications are tailored specifically to Canadian NTEA members:

MVP Application Information

Distributor and Manufacturer members are asked to complete an Application Form (see above) and attach required documentation. There is no application fee involved.

MVP companies will be announced on a quarterly basis (Jan. 1, April 1, July 1 and Oct. 1) in a variety of electronic and print communications, including a press release to key trade media.

The NTEA completely underwrites the cost of this important business tool with the sole purpose of building the core competencies of its Distributor and Manufacturer members.
