Normal, Illinois… Illinois-based trucking companyNussbaum Transportation was recognized by FleetOwner magazine as its 2012 Fleet of the Year in the For Hire category. Editors researched candidates over the course of the year and selected Nussbaum for innovative management techniques implemented to advance the fleet’s overall mission and to guarantee continued success.
An article in the December issue of the publication cites close attention to customer needs and driver concerns as elements contributing to Nussbaum’s excellence. From continually reviewing and updating truck and trailer specs with an eye on innovative products that create a more fuel-efficient fleet, to commissioning custom trailer designs that address specific issues faced by customers, Nussbaum lives its motto, ‘Setting New Ideas in Motion,’ says the article.
