2017 Best Fleets to Drive For

2017 Best Fleets to Drive For

We are proud to be counted as one of the Best Fleets to Drive For for the third year in a row. One of the things that makes this award special to us, is that it all begins with a nomination from a driver. We believe we have some of the best drivers in the industry and are thankful that they believe in this company and the work we do together each day.

We’d like to say thank you to our drivers, office and maintenance staff, vendors, and customers for helping to make Nussbaum a Best Fleet To Drive For.


A little more about Best Fleets to Drive For:

Best Fleets to Drive For was launched in the summer of 2008 by CarriersEdge and Truckload Carriers Association and runs through the fall and winter each year. The program identifies trends, shares best practices, and publicly recognizes the for-hire carriers providing the best workplaces for their drivers.


Best Fleets to Drive For is open to any for-hire trucking company operating 10 trucks or more in the US or Canada. Fleets do not have to be members of TCA to participate and there's no cost to participate.

To be considered, fleets must be nominated by a driver or independent contractor currently working with them, then complete the evaluation process within prescribed timelines.

Evaluation Process

There are four stages to the Best Fleets evaluation process:

  • Nomination - A driver or independent contractor nominates the fleet through this site. One nomination per company each year is sufficient.
  • Questionnaire - Company representatives complete and submit an online questionnaire, providing details on company programs and policies.
  • Interview - CarriersEdge staff conduct a follow-up interview to review the questionnaire and fill in additional information.
  • Driver survey - Drivers/contractors at the fleet complete an online survey, providing feedback on company programs and overall satisfaction.

Once the questionnaire and interview stages are completed, and a sufficient number of driver surveys are submitted, fleets may advance to the final round. In the final round, scores are assigned for the breadth and depth of programs being offered, driver satisfaction levels, and driver retention and safety performance. Fleets with the best overall scores are named Best Fleets for the year.
