We were excited to learn that Nussbaum Transportation was recently named one of 20 North American finalists for the 2015 Best Fleets to Drive For. This is an annual award administered by Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and Carriers Edge of Markham, Ontario, which honors for-hire trucking companies that provide the best workplace experiences for their drivers.
The Nomination Process
To be considered for the Best Fleets award, Nussbaum had to be nominated by at least one of our drivers. Carriers Edge then interviewed members of our human resources and executive teams, as well as a selection of our drivers, for their feedback on our corporate direction, policies, and programs. Everything from compensation to driver turnover rate to safety was taken into consideration during the interviews.
We have been nominated for this award in the past, but did not make it to the finalist round…until this year. The work we are doing here at Nussbaum to build a company culture where people come first is obviously getting us noticed! Learn more about the mission, vision, and values that make up the culture of Nussbaum Transportation.
A “People First” Company
While Nussbaum does offer some of the best pay and benefits in the industry, “putting people first” is about much more than just salaries and insurance coverage. Here are just a few of the way we show our employees that they are a priority to us:
New high-tech maintenance facility: If you are running, you aren’t clocking miles. That’s why, at Nussbaum, we service our own equipment because we know that smooth-running tractors and trailers make your job a little easier and your time more productive. Getting you back on the road safely and quickly is priority one for our team of maintenance coordinators.
New corporate headquarters: We had our people in mind when we designed this building. Some of the driver amenities you will find at our headquarters include private shower rooms, an inviting and comfortable driver lounge with satellite TV, treadmill, desks, a coffee maker, microwave, and Wi-Fi. We even have a pond with a walking path if you just want some fresh air, peace, and quiet.
Top-of-the-line equipment: We want you to be safe and comfortable when you are on the road, so we regularly invest in new and upgraded equipment. In fact, our average tractor is only two years old. You’ll find our trucks have features like automatic transmission, condo sleepers, refrigerators, roll-stability, and more. We also pursue innovative technologies that can increase efficiency, such as trailer skirts and tails.
At Nussbaum, we’re building a place where people want to come to work each day…a company that places a high value on each and every employee. By treating people fairly and honesty, we find that they are excited to say, “I work at Nussbaum.”
Come see for yourself what makes Nussbaum different from other trucking companies.
