2016 Best Fleets To Drive For Announced


The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge this week announced the winners of this year’s Best Fleets to Drive For contest.

The annual contest spotlights carriers that have been nominated by drivers.  The companies that were nominated are then evaluated on a “broad range of criteria” such as driver compensation, benefits, driver support, the company’s commitment to a favorable work-life balance, safety, annual turnover rate and more.

Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For

  • Bay and Bay Transportation, Eagan, Minnesota
  • Bison Transport, Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • Boyle Transportation, Billerica, Massachusetts
  • Central Oregon Truck Company, Inc., Redmond, Oregon
  • Challenger Motor Freight Inc., Cambridge, Ontario

“To be considered for the Best Fleets program, a company operating 10 trucks or more had to be nominated by at least one of its company drivers or owner operators. CarriersEdge then interviewed human resources representatives and executives of the nominated fleets about their corporate direction, policies, and programs. Nominated fleets were evaluated against a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, such as total compensation package (base pay, bonuses, vacation, sick days, etc.), health benefits, pension plans, professional development opportunities, career path/advancement opportunities, and more,” TCA said in a press release.
