The folks at our sister publication Commercial Carrier Journal have just gathered data on the top trucking companies in the U.S. and released this year’s CCJ Top 250.
This comprehensive analysis of companies looks at a variety of measures and ranks both public and private fleets in a several categories. Listings are broken down by revenues or number of trucks, tractors, trailers or drivers, and by type of haul and geographic region.
The story begins:
“In most respects, 2015 was a good year for carriers. Trucking failures were nearly nonexistent. According to Avondale Partners, only 4,405 trucks were removed from operation last year, a dramatic slowdown from the 29,780 the year before.
“But rising costs, the looming electronic logging device compliance date at the end of 2017 and other regulatory pressures could spell a return to elevated failures this year.”
