About Best Fleets to Drive For®
Launched in 2008, Best Fleets to Drive For® is the only annual program dedicated to uncovering the best workplaces in the North American trucking industry. Produced by CarriersEdge, Best Fleets to Drive For recognizes the for-hire fleets providing exceptional workplace experiences for their company drivers and independent contractors.
In addition to recognizing winners in multiple categories, we also share those findings through press stories, webinars, and public presentations at various industry events.
Why Run a Best Employer Program?
For years, the trucking industry has been painted as an industry of last resort, full of dead end jobs and unscrupulous, oppressive employers. That negative image adversely affects those working in the industry, as well as people who might otherwise considering joining.
Best Fleets to Drive For® was created as a way to counter that image and help the industry build on its succcesses. Specifically, the Best Fleets program:
- Recognizes fleets of all sizes who provide a great work experience for their drivers
- Collects and shares best practices across a range of different categories, so others can learn from them
- Provides a benchmarking method that participants can use for their own continuous improvement
- Highlights the positive things the trucking industry is doing to help drivers develop more fulfilling careers
