Truck drivers can nominate their fleet for the Best Fleets to Drive For contest, produced by the Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge, through the end of October.
The annual contest and survey, now in its 12th year, evaluates and identifies trucking companies that provide the best working environments for drivers and other employees in the industry.
By nominating a fleet, drivers should highlight the parts of their company’s culture they like, such as compensation, safety, benefits, equipment, training and more. If the company accepts the nomination and agrees to participate, the survey then digs deeper into its policies and practices.
To be eligible, a trucking company must operate 10 or more tractor-trailers in the U.S. or Canada. TCA membership is not required.
The top 20 finishers will be identified as Best Fleets to Drive For and will be announced in January. From the top 20, companies will be divided into “small” and “large” categories, and two overall winners will be selected. The winners will be announced at the TCA Annual Convention in Kissimmee, Florida, on March 1-3.
Prime, Inc. and Nussbaum Transportation were named the Best Fleets to Drive For in the 2019 contest.
