CarriersEdge announced the winners of its 2024 Best Fleets to Drive For, a platform recognizing for-hire carriers offering the best workplace experience for their company drivers and independent contractors, on Tuesday afternoon. Nominated by a company driver or independent contractor working with them, fleets were assessed on factors such as driver compensation, pension and benefits, professional development, driver and community support, and safety record.

This year’s Best Overall Fleet in the small carrier category was K&J Trucking of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Marked as a significant milestone, it’s the first time K&J Trucking has received a Best Overall Fleet award. This year also marks the third occasion where the company has been recognized as a Top 20 Best Fleet to Drive For.

At the large carrier category, Challenger Motor Freight of Cambridge, Ontario bagged the award for the Best Overall Fleet. It’s the second time the company has received a Best Overall Fleet award. It has also consistently been recognized as a Top 20 Best Fleet to Drive for five consecutive occasions.

Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge, commended that the fleets topping the list were exciting to watch, with both winners in the large and small carrier category exemplifying hard work and excellence. She said, “Both companies showed that they’re progressive in developing innovative awards but truly make a difference in their relationships with drivers. Their overall winner awards are well deserved.”

Additionally, Garner Trucking of Findlay, Ohio, also received The Stratosphere Award, a new accolade recognizing the top-scoring fleet in the Best Fleets Hall of Fame. To be eligible, fleets must be named as a Best Fleet for 10 consecutive years, or seven years with at least one overall winner award.
