TCA and CarriersEdge launch the latest edition of the coveted best employer program

Alexandria, Virginia and Markham, Ontario - For the last 14 years, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have recognized top performing carriers through an annual Best Fleets to Drive For® contest. The program returns for its 15th iteration today, September 6th, when professional truck drivers and independent contractors can formally nominate the company they work for as a Best Fleet to Drive for. Nominations will be open until October 31st, 2022.

Fleets operating 10 or more tractor-trailers in the U.S. or Canada are eligible for nomination. Visit to learn about the program and how to submit a nomination. A TCA membership is not required to participate.

By nominating a fleet, a professional truck driver is formally recognizing its company's culture, programs, and working environment. If the carrier chooses to participate, Senior Management will take part in a questionnaire and interview, while a selection of drivers will participate in surveys, all of which dig deeper into the company's policies and practices.

At the end of the evaluation process, the top 20 highest scoring fleets will be identified as Best Fleets to Drive For and announced at the end of January 2023. From this pool, companies will be divided into "small" and "large" carrier categories. Two overall winners will be then recognized alongside fleets who will be entering the program's Hall of Fame at the TCA Annual Convention, March 4-7, 2023, in Kissimmee, Florida.

"The program evolves every season to match what is happening in the industry," said Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge. "Over the past two years, we watched carriers work hard to meet the unprecedented challenges that arose during COVID. Now, we are excited to see what new ideas fleets have come up with to transition from the pandemic and meet the challenges of a fluctuating economy."

"The Best Fleets to Drive For program started fifteen years ago during the 2008 recession, surprising us with the unique ways fleets addressed the needs of their drivers during times of uncertainty," said TCA President Jim Ward. "I look forward to seeing what new standards carriers have implemented since last years program to better working conditions for professional drivers, and the industry as a whole."
