The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) recently announced its “2019 Best Fleets to Drive For” recognition. This 11th annual list represents the best-of-the-best in North America’s for-hire trucking segment, according to TCA.
PrePass congratulates all of these companies and is proud that 16 of the 20 trucking companies named as finalists on the list are PrePass customers.
To be considered for the competition, companies operating 10 or more trucks had to receive a nomination from at least one of their company drivers or owner operators.
The fleets were then evaluated using a scoring system 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.
This year’s list of fleets had an average driver satisfaction rate over 91% and annual driver turnover under 35%.
“The winners have set the bar high when it comes to keeping their professional truck drivers engaged while also providing a superior work environment,” said John Lyboldt, TCA president. “This coveted contest reveals the tremendous efforts put forth by these driver-centric companies.”
An overall winner, in the large and small fleet categories, will be named during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 10-13 in Las Vegas.
