Best Fleets to Drive For nominations open

Sept. 5, 2023
The 16th edition of the annual survey and contest seeks the best employers in North America's trucking industry.

Best Fleets to Drive For has opened nominations for the 16th edition of the program. Now through Oct. 31, company drivers and independent contractors can nominate the companies they work for as Best Fleets to Drive For on the program’s website.

All for-hire fleets operating 10 or more tractor-trailers in the US or Canada, regardless of freight segment, are eligible to participate in the program.

Once nominated, fleets who choose to participate complete a questionnaire and interview, providing information about driver programs across various categories. A selection of drivers are also surveyed, supplementing the information provided by management. Company responses and driver surveys are compiled and scored, with the top 20 scorers identified as Best Fleets to Drive For. The top 20 are then divided into “small” and “large” fleet categories, and the top-scoring fleet in each category is crowned Best Overall Fleet.

The Top 20 Best Fleets, the overall winners, and fleets entering the Hall of Fame will be recognized at a dedicated awards ceremony and education event scheduled for April 2024.

“The past few years have been particularly challenging for the freight industry”, noted Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge, the online driver training provider that produces the award. “Fleets have really been stepping up to take care of their drivers, and we’re looking forward to hearing about all the great ideas they’ve come up with to make life on the road better.”
