OTTAWA, Ont. — Trucking HR Canada has announced the launch of the Best Fleets to Drive For: Canada program, an offshoot of the popular Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) competition, powered by CarriersEdge.
Best Fleets to Drive For: Canada, will recognize the Canadian private and for-hire carriers fleets that provide the best workplaces for drivers. The Private Motor Truck Council of Canada and Canadian Trucking Alliance have partnered with Trucking HR Canada on the program, and private and for-hire fleets will be scored using different selection criteria.
“Best Fleets to Drive For: Canada will capture and promote effective human resources practices throughout the trucking industry, celebrate fleets which take extra steps to support their employees and operators, and offer leading fleets the public recognition they deserve,” said Angela Splinter, chief executive officer of Trucking HR Canada.
The new program will focus exclusively on Canadian fleets and their human resources issues, Splinter added. The program stems from the CTA’s Blue Ribbon Task Force on the Drive Shortage in Trucking, which identified the need to promote positive human resources practices.
The first call for submissions will take place in early 2014, organizers say.
