CarriersEdge releases 2024 Best Fleets list

CarriersEdge releases 2024 Best Fleets list

The Best Fleets program aims to recognize companies providing drivers with exceptional workplace experiences.

To be considered for the the CarriersEdge 2024 Best Fleets to Drive For program, for-hire carriers in North America operating 10-plus tractor-trailers were nominated by a current company driver or owner-operator. CarriersEdge then evaluated the fleets across a range of categories, including compensation, benefits, HR strategies, operations, professional development and work/life balance. Finally, each fleet collected surveys from drivers to measure the work satisfaction.

CarriersEdge scored all questionnaire and survey results to identify the top performers. Fleets with the highest overall scores are recognized as Best Fleets to Drive For, while fleets receiving the distinction for 10 consecutive years (or 7 consecutive years plus an overall winner award) are inducted into the Hall of Fame.

According to CarriersEdge, the top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For in 2024 are (in alphabetical order):

  • American Central Transport, Inc. – Kansas City, MO
  • Brenny Specialized, Inc. – Saint Joseph, MN
  • C.A.T. Inc. – Coteau-du-Lac, QC
  • Challenger Motor Freight, Inc. – Cambridge, ON
  • Chief Carriers, Inc. – Grand Island, NE
  • Continental Express, Inc. – Sidney, OH

  • Prime Inc. – Springfield, MO
  • TransPro Freight Systems, Ltd. – Milton, ON

“The past year has been exceptionally difficult for the trucking industry,” noted Jane Jazrawy, chief executive officer of CarriersEdge. “However, the Best Fleets continued to find new ways to improve the work experience for their drivers and independent contractors, once again raising the bar on what’s possible. The Hall of Fame took that even further, with all 10 of last year’s Hall of Famers requalifying through a range of innovative programs and driver supports.”

Along with the top 20 and hall of fame fleets, five honorable mentions—or as CarriersEdge calls them, “Fleets to Watch”—were also named:

  • Ippolito Transportation, Inc. – Burlington, ON
  • Magnum Companies, Ltd. – Fargo, ND
  • Mill Creek Motor Freight LTD – Ayr, ON
  • Peninsula Truck Lines, Inc. – Federal Way, WA
  • Stokes Trucking, LLC. – Tremonton, UT

From the top 20, two overall winners will be unveiled, in large and small fleet categories, at the Best Fleets Education & Awards Conference, April 8-9, 2024 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte.
