For the past several years, a Missouri-based trucking company has popped up on multiple industry lists as a premier place for drivers to work.

ACT Appears on “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation”

Kansas City, Missouri-based American Central Transport Inc. was recently honored with an appearance on the 2020 “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation” list for an incredible third year in a row.

The list is compiled by the non-profit group Women In Trucking Association (WIT) in order to recognize the efforts of transportation companies that invest in the careers of women workers. In handing out the award, WIT considers factors like corporate culture, compensation and benefits, flexible hours and work requirements, professional development opportunities, and career advancement opportunities. ACT’s third appearance in three years on the list is a testament to their commitment to supporting female employees and their career growth.

TCA Honors ACT As One Of America’s “Best Fleets To Drive For”

But that isn’t the only list that American Central Transport has appeared on so far in 2020. The company also made their third appearance in three years on the CarriersEdge and Truckload Carriers Association’s “Best Fleets To Drive For” list for 2020.

The “Best Fleets To Drive For” list is unique in that drivers are the ones who nominate companies. From there, the top companies are chosen after consideration of driver feedback, interviews with company management, and a review of benefits and advancement opportunities.

“Now in its 12th year, the program continues to showcase the best fleets in the industry,” said CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy. “These carriers constantly raise the bar when it comes to driver satisfaction, innovative programs, and superior work environment.”

ACT makes regular appearances on both lists because they consistently treat drivers with the respect they deserve, offering them straightforward, competitive pay packages, a family-friendly company culture, and a commitment to keep drivers safe and moving with plenty of miles.

American Central Transport was founded in 1926 and has grown to become one of the most respected dry van truckload service providers in the U.S. If you want to learn more about joining their award-winning team, please call 877-572-5770 to get started.
