A growing trucking and logistics company continues to relentlessly rack up awards for their innovative business practices and driver-friendly company culture.
On November 4, Illinois-based trucking company GP Transco was recognized by the Chicago Tribune as a Top Workplace for 2021. The Top Workplace award highlights companies in all business sectors that demonstrate high levels of employee satisfaction by offering a positive company culture and career advancement opportunities.
The honor awarded to GP Transco marks the first year that a company within the transportation sector has made the annual list since 2019.
The award recipients are chosen using anonymous employee (office staff, truck drivers, and shop technicians) surveys that measure factors like work-life balance, employee engagement, and company leadership to determine which Chicagoland businesses are the most worker-friendly.
Top-of-industry pay is part of the reason that GP Transco drivers are so satisfied with their jobs. Solo company drivers currently earn $75,000 – $90,000 in their first year with full W2 benefits. As of November 2, the company sat in the number one overall slot for driver pay rankings on the independent website truckdriverssalary.com.
GP Transco has been consistently recognized over the past several years for their modern approach to trucking and driver-focused company culture. The company was honored as the “Best Fleet For Drivers” by tech company Samsara as part of the 2020 Top Fleet Awards as well as Smart-Trucking.com’s “Best Trucking Companies to Work For” list in 2020 and 2021. The company has also earned the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company Award five times and the Crain’s Fast 50 Award five times.
GP Transco provides reliable dry van transportation services to customers throughout the U.S. and Canada, with more than 500 trucks and 700 trailers in the growing fleet. If you’re ready to become a part of the Top Workplace team at GP Transco, please click here.
