The Truckload Carriers Association (TC) and CarriersEdge opened up the nominations process for the annual Best Fleets to Drive For contest. Fleets can be nominated until October 31.
The contest seeks to identify and recognize the top tier carriers.
By nominating a fleet, a professional truck driver is recognizing the things about the company’s culture that they like, such as outstanding compensation, safety practices, 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, bringing to light the areas that are innovative and/or successful.
To be eligible, a fleet must operate 10 or more tractor-trailers in the U.S. or Canada. TCA membership is not required. Participants will answer questions about their current human resources practices, both electronically and through phone interviews with senior management and a random sampling of their drivers.
“This program evolves every year to reflect changes in the industry, but this year, the changes have been a little more drastic than others with remote work becoming more common and carriers having to deal with intense weather events and cybersecurity issues on top of the challenges they’re used to. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen fleets go above and beyond to support their drivers, so it will be exciting to see more of those details this year,” says CarriersEdge CEO Jane Jazrawy said,
The top 20 finalists will be announced in January 2022.
