The Best Fleets program requires companies operating 10 or more trucks to receive a nomination from one of their company drivers or owner-operators. Fleets are evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, including total compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria. Driver surveys are conducted to collect input from drivers and independent contractors working with the fleets.
Two overall winners, in large and small fleet categories, will be named during TCA’s Annual Convention — Truckload2020: Orlando — to be held March 1-3 at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida.
The Best Fleets to Drive For overall winner awards are sponsored by EpicVue and TruckRight.
