Five Canadian carriers have been recognized in the 2017 Best Fleets to Drive For competition run by the U.S.-based Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge from Ontario.
The Canadian fleets in this year’s top 20 list include OTA members Bison Transport of Winnipeg, Challenger Motor Freight of Cambridge, Ont., Kriska Holdings of Prescott, Ont.; One For Freight of Milton, Ont.; and TransPro Freight Systems of Milton, Ont.
To be considered for the program, those with 10 trucks or more had to be nominated by one of its company drivers or owner-operators. CarriersEdge then interviewed Human Resources representatives and fleet executives about corporate direction, policies, and programs. The fleets were scored in categories including total compensation, health benefits, pension plans, professional development, and career advancement.
Driver feedback was then compared with management notes to develop the final scores.
The names of overall winners will be announced during the Truckload Carriers Association’s annual convention from March 26-29.
