To be considered for the 2024 Best Fleets program, for-hire carriers operating 10 tractor-trailers or more were nominated by a company driver or owner-operator currently working with them. These nominated fleets were then evaluated across a range of categories, including compensation and benefits, HR strategies, operations, professional development, and work/life balance. Finally, each fleet collected surveys from their drivers to measure the satisfaction of the fleet. The results of the questionnaire and surveys were compiled and scored to identify the top performers. 

From the Top 20, two overall winners will be unveiled, in large and small fleet categories, at the Best Fleets Education & Awards Conference, April 8-9, at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to announcing the winners, the conference will also share full details of the data collected during this year’s edition of the program – statistics, trends, and innovative programs from all the Top 20 and Hall of Fame fleets. The conference is sponsored by EpicVue, TruckRight, and Netradyne.

“The past year has been exceptionally difficult for the trucking industry,” noted Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge. “However, the Best Fleets continued to find new ways to improve the work experience for their drivers and independent contractors, once again raising the bar on what’s possible. The Hall of Fame took that even further, with all 10 of last year’s Hall of Famers requalifying through a range of innovative programs and driver supports.”
