Goodyear said it will select two winners for the award from a pool of commercial drivers. Goodyear said it is seeking nominations for CDL drivers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others on the road, regardless of whether they operate highway trucks or regional delivery or vocational vehicles.

The winners will receive cash prizes and a Goodyear prize package, which will include travel and hotel expenses for a trip to New Orleans in March 2024 for the announcement of the winner at the Technology & Maintenance Council Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.

A cash prize and Goodyear prize packages will also be awarded to up to four runners-up.

Time selects Schneider as a 'World's Best Company'

Schneider National, Inc. was recently named to TIME’s inaugural list of the World’s Best Companies.

The World's Best Companies of 2023 ranking is a study conducted to identify the top performing companies across the globe. Schneider was evaluated based on the analysis of three primary dimensions: associate satisfaction, revenue growth and environmental, social and governance data.

“We could not have achieved this recognition without the contributions of our phenomenal associates who play an integral role in ensuring Schneider’s success,” said Schneider Executive Vice President of Human Resources Angela Fish. “They help define and fulfill our company culture, which has led to our increased focus on sustainability, the development of a formal commitment to reduce our environmental impact, as well as efforts to advance diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) across the company.”

Driving long-term value for its key stakeholders, including customers, associates, investors and communities, is at the heart of Schneider’s ESG approach.

The company said its Business Resource Groups (BRGs) are a crucial component of Schneider culture, allowing associates to share common identities and values to build their community and sense of belonging in the workplace. The BRGs grow in membership and number each year, given their focus on employee growth via career development, networking and mentoring.

Schneider said it is also one of the first and largest carriers to operationalize a large-scale battery electric vehicle (BEV) fleet with nearly 100 BEVs. In 2023, the carrier has hauled more than one million zero emission miles of customer freight using BEVs.

In addition to being a strong advocate for sustainability, the company promotes safety practices and wellness initiatives across the entire transportation industry.
