Boyle Transportation and Nussbaum Transportation Revealed as 2020 Best Fleets to Drive For Overall Winners

Kissimmee, Florida — The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA), and its partner CarriersEdge, have unveiled the overall winners of the 2020 Best Fleets to Drive For contest and survey. The winners were announced during TCA’s Annual Convention — Truckload 2020: Orlando — at the Gaylord Palms Resort.

The Best Overall Fleet in the small carrier category, an award sponsored by TruckRight, was presented to Boyle Transportation, of Billerica, Massachusetts.

The Best Overall Fleet in the large carrier category, an award sponsored by EpicVue, was presented to Nussbaum Transportation, of Hudson, Illinois.

Now in its 12th year, the Best Fleets to Drive For Contest, is an annual survey and contest that recognizes North American for-hire trucking companies who provide the best workplace experience for their drivers.

To be considered, fleets must be nominated by a company driver or independent contractor working with them, after which they are evaluated across a broad range of categories reflecting current best practices in human resources. The contest accepts nominations from Labor Day to Halloween each year.

Annually, each January, TCA and CarriersEdge announces its Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For winners which are categorized according to size. The highest scoring fleet in each category is named an Overall Winner during TCA’s Annual Convention each Spring.

Both Boyle Transportation and Nussbaum Transportation have been named to the Best Fleets Top 20 multiple times, with Nussbaum recently winning the 2019 Best Overall Fleet in the small carrier category. The categorization is based on how the Top 20 is broken down according to fleet size.

Nussbaum Transportation, with 442 drivers, was noted for its approach to new technology adoption, where a focus on personal needs ensures the enhancements optimize, rather than disrupt, driver efficiency. The company’s creative approach to HR and professional development programs also earned top scores across a variety of categories.

Boyle Transportation, with 133 drivers, stood out for its investments in driver support programs and operational efficiency improvements. Its guaranteed pay, provision of cell phones and connectivity tools, and a generous scholarship offering all demonstrated a willingness to invest in areas many fleets are reluctant to explore.

CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy noted that both Boyle Transportation and Nussbaum Transportation are seeing impressive results from their programs: both have driver satisfaction above 93% and driver turnover under 20%.

“We’ve been aware of these fleets for years, watching them continue to refine their offerings and raise the bar for the industry,” said Jazrawy. “With such creative ideas, and strong buy-in from drivers on their efforts, it’s easy to see why they’re seeing such great results.”

TCA President John Lyboldt agrees. “To be bestowed the title of Overall Winner requires a strong combination of outstanding programs, high satisfaction levels, and great results in safety and retention, and these companies should be very proud,” he said. “A special congratulations to Nussbaum for winning the award twice in a row – that’s an even more difficult feat.”

The Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest is open to any fleet operating 10 or more trucks, regardless of TCA membership status. Nominated fleets are evaluated in areas such as: Driver compensation, pension and benefits, professional development, driver and community support, and safety record.

HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK?

The true cost of an accident can be staggering. Besides direct costs, indirect costs like poor publicity, lost clients and lost productivity can take a toll. The average cost for a truck accident is $148,279, not including litigation. It would take an additional revenue of $7,413,950 to pay the accident costs, assuming an average profit margin of 2%. A study of over one million lines of data on truck violations discovered that over 28,000 trucking companies, representing over 200,000 trucks, operated with safety violations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association’s (FMSCA) settlement for non-compliance was $36,262,097 in 2014 with an average fine of over $7,000 per case.
