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

Two big winners, in the large and small fleet categories, will be named at TCA’s annual convention – Truckload 2022: Las Vegas – taking place March 19-22 at Wynn Las Vegas.
