Canadian Fleets Well Placed TCA Best Fleets to Drive For List

Canadian for-hire fleets, many of which are also CTA carrier members, routinely show very well in the Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge Best Fleets to Drive For contest. This year was no different as several Canadian carriers made the list in various categories.

The Top 20 winners are for-hire trucking companies from across North America that are being recognized for providing “exemplary work environments” for their professional truck drivers and employees.

To be considered for the Best Fleets program, for-hire companies operating 10 or more tractor trailers had to receive a nomination from one of their company drivers or owner-operators. The fleets were then evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, including:

  • total compensation,
  • health benefits,
  • performance management,
  • professional development, and;
  • career path/advancement opportunities.

Driver surveys were also conducted to collect input from drivers and independent contractors working with the fleets.

Canadian carriers named in the 2023 Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For are:

C.A.T. Inc. – Coteau-du-Lac, QC (2)

Challenger Motor Freight Inc. – Cambridge, ON (3)

Erb Transport – New Hamburg, ON (7)

Fortigo Freight Services Inc. – Etobicoke, ON (8)

Kriska Holdings Limited – Prescott, ON (12)

Wellington Group of Companies – Aberfoyle, ON (20)

Last year, TCA and CarriersEdge expanded the program by adding a Hall of Fame category. This recognition level is above the regular Top 20 and honors fleets demonstrating Top 20 performance for extended periods of time.

To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, fleets must be named as a Best Fleet for 10 consecutive years, or 7 years with at least one overall award, and must continue to qualify as a Top 20 to be eligible.

Bison Transport Inc. – Winnipeg, MB was the Canadian carrier on the Hall of Fame list.

TransPro Freight Systems Limited – Milton, ON, was a 2023 Best Fleets to Driver for New Hall of Fame Recipient.

Meanwhile, Mill Creek Motor Freight LTD – Ayr, ON and Skelton Truck Lines – Sharon, ON, received honorable mentions.
