“This year’s best fleets have once again set new standard for workplace experience in the North American trucking industry, said CarriersEdge CEO Jane Jazrawy. “From compensation and benefits to operational strategy, professional development and work-life balance, they have raised the bar more dramatically than we’ve ever seen before.”

Best Fleets to Drive For is an annual survey and contest that recognizes North American for-hire trucking companies providing the best workplace experiences for their drivers. To participate, fleets must be nominated by a company driver or independent contractor working with them, after which they are evaluated across a broad range of categories reflecting current best practices in human resources. The 20 top finishers are identified as Best Fleets to Drive For and then divided in half according to size. The highest scoring fleet in each category is named overall winner.
