Truckload Carriers Association is asking for nominations for its 6th Annual Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest. Company drivers and owner-operators may nominate trucking companies through 5 p.m. on Nov. 1.

Simply go to to complete the application form.

Best Fleets to Drive For is an annual evaluation of the best employers in the trucking industry. CarriersEdge of Markham, Ontario conducts the survey for TCA.

Best Fleets is open to all for-hire trucking companies operating in the U.S. or Canada with 10 or more trucks, regardless of TCA membership status. After a company is nominated and chooses to continue with the survey and contest, it answers questions about its current human resources best practices, both electronically and via phone interviews with senior management and a random sampling of its drivers.

Top finishers will be identified as Best Fleets to Drive For, and the highest scoring fleets in each of the Company Driver and Owner Operator categories will be named that category’s overall winner.

As a carrier proceeds through the program, its policies and processes are scrutinized, from benefits and professional development, to driver and community support, to safety record and company culture.

After the survey is completed, the top 20 winners will be announced on Jan. 31, 2014, and will be recognized at TCA’s Annual Convention, March 23-26, 2014, at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. The Best Overall Fleet in both categories will also be announced and honored at the convention.
