Chico, CA, October 5, 2021 (GlobeNewswire) — Work Truck Solutions®  was named a 2021 Automotive News PACE Award winner at the online awards ceremony. The prestigious award recognizes automotive suppliers for superior innovation, technological advancement and business performance.

Work Truck Solutions was recognized for its innovative solutions and approach in the commercial vehicle space.  Serving this $170 billion segment of the automotive industry, the company continuously focuses on developing solutions that best serve their customers’ needs, such as the Vehicle Acquisition Search Tool (VAST) and national commercial vehicle marketplace,  

Accepting the award, Work Truck Solutions CEO Kathryn Schifferle said, “We’re singularly focused on serving the commercial vehicle space, and approach developing solutions with a partnership mindset. Two years ago we launched to connect dealers with the perfect commercial buyers. Then during these trying times we knew that dealers needed new ways to find work trucks, vans and pickups for their customers, so we built our commercial Vehicle Acquisition Search Tool (VAST), along with EZOrder, to meet those changing needs.” Schifferle wrapped up her comments by saying, “Receiving the PACE award is a terrific acknowledgment of our dedication and the solutions we provide; we couldn’t be more proud.”
