The Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge Announce the 2022 Best Fleets to Drive For

2022 Best Fleets to Drive For

February 1, 2022


The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have announced the 2022 Best Fleets to Drive For. The Top 20 winners are comprised of for-hire trucking companies from across North America who are being recognized for providing exemplary work environments for their professional truck drivers and employees. TruckRight is proud to be one of two sponsors for this event. 

New this year, TCA and CarriersEdge have expanded the program by adding a Hall of Fame category. This recognition level is above the regular Top 20 and honors fleets demonstrating Top 20 performance for extended periods of time. To be eligible for the Hall of Fame, Fleets must be named as a Best Fleet for 10 consecutive years, or 7 years with at least one overall award. The Hall of Fame is sponsored by EpicVue.

“What an exciting time for this coveted contest as we launch the Hall of Fame category,” shared TCA President John Lyboldt. “During Truckload 2022: Las Vegas, we’re eager to recognize 28 fleets who are dedicated to providing the best possible workplace experience to their essential workers – professional truck drivers. Be sure to attend this year’s revamped awards presentation in March.”

“This year we saw more than 200 fleets nominated by their drivers for this program, and all participants were clearly stepping up their game,” said CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy. “This year’s Top 20 and Hall of Fame fleets rose to the top with a range of innovative and effective programs that continue to improve the work experience for their drivers.”

Two carriers are to be recognized for five consecutive years as a Best Fleet: American Central Transport and Thomas E. Keller Trucking Inc.

To be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating 10 or more trucks had to receive a nomination from one of their company drivers or owner operators. The fleets were then evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, including total compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria. Driver surveys were also conducted to collect input from drivers and independent contractors working with the fleets.

Two overall winners, in large and small fleet categories, will be named during TCA’s Annual Convention — Truckload 2022: Las Vegas — set for March 19-22 at the Wynn Las Vegas.
