Content Sponsored by Great Plains Transport

A North Dakota-based trucking company was recently nominated by one of their own drivers for a major award that recognizes carriers who provide outstanding compensation, benefits, and company culture.

Mapleton, North Dakota trucking company Great Plains Transport was nominated for the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge “Best Fleets To Drive For” award for 2021.

The annual contest is unique because it is the drivers who do the nominating to recognize trucking company employers who provide them with superior workplace environments.

“The Best Fleets to Drive For program is one with which each and every carrier wishes to align themselves,” said TCA President John Lyboldt. “Year after year, we’re honored to showcase these very deserving fleets. Especially this year, we want to recognize those that have provided an excellent workplace for drivers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The winners of the contest will be announced at the TCA’s Annual Convention in January 2021.
