In 2021, we were nominated as one of the 2022 Best Fleets to Drive For. Now, thanks to our passionate and dedicated community, we’ve moved forward as a top 20 finalist!
The prestigious annual poll and competition recognizes the for-hire carriers that are providing the best workplace for their drivers within the trucking industry.
"I continue to be amazed by the Best Fleets to Drive For® winners," said TCA President John Lyboldt. "By setting such high standards for their own businesses, these carriers influence the entire industry to provide a better working environment for all employees."
Companies with 10 or more trucks in their fleet have to receive a nomination from one of their company drivers or owner operators to be considered for the Best Fleet to Drive For program. After that, carriers are scored on a grading matrix that includes overall compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement.
Ascend takes care of our drivers by offering top pay, quality home time and a variety of great runs. We also make it a priority to listen to our drivers, so we can provide the best working environment and professional development possible.
“This program evolves every year to reflect changes in the industry, but this year, the changes have been a little more drastic than others with remote work becoming more common and carriers having to deal with intense weather events and cybersecurity issues on top of the challenges they’re used to,” CarriersEdge CEO Jane Jazrawy said. “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve seen fleets go above and beyond to support their drivers, so it will be exciting to see more of those details this year.”
Out of the 20 carriers selected as finalists, one small carrier and one large carrier will be selected and announced on Feb. 1 as The Best Fleets to Drive For in 2022. If you want to join one of the top 20 fleets to drive for in the country, check out our open CDL-A truck driver jobs today!
