Best Fleets to Drive For, produced by CarriersEdge, has opened nominations for the sixteenth edition of the program. Now through Oct. 31, company drivers and independent contractors can visit the site to formally nominate the companies they work with as Best Fleets to Drive For. All for-hire fleets operating 10 or more tractor-trailers in the US or Canada, regardless of freight segment, are eligible to participate in the program, according to the recent press release.
Once nominated, the company notes that fleets who choose to participate complete a questionnaire and interview, providing information about driver programs across a range of categories. A selection of drivers are also surveyed, supplementing the information provided by management, and according to the company, responses and driver surveys are compiled and scored, with the top 20 scorers identified as Best Fleets to Drive For. The top 20 is then divided into “small” and “large” fleet categories and the top scoring fleet in each category is crowned Best Overall Fleet for the category, CarriersEdge notes.
The Top 20 Best Fleets, the overall winners, and fleets entering the Hall of Fame will be recognized at an awards ceremony and education event scheduled for April, according to the press release.
