Canadian fleets among best to drive for

John G Smith

MARKHAM, ON – Four Canadian companies have been named among the Best Fleets to Drive For, in an annual competition run by the Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge.

Bison Transport of Winnipeg, Manitoba, joins TransPro Freight Systems of Milton, Ontario, as one of three North American fleets to make the list for five consecutive years. Challenger Motor Freight of Cambridge, Ontario, and Erb Transport of New Hamburg, Ontario, round out the list of Canadian winners. Larway Transportation of Barrie, Ontario, earned an honorable mention.

CarriersEdge interviews human resources representatives and executives from nominated fleets about corporate directions, policies, and programs. A scoring matrix is then applied to measure total compensation packages, health benefits, pension plans, professional development opportunities, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria.

“Creative new programs from the Top 20 companies received high marks from drivers,” said Jane Jazrawy, co-founder of CarriersEdge. “The average satisfaction level among the Top 20 companies was over 90%, and the average turnover among these companies was under 40%.”

The TCA will name the top companies among them during its upcoming annual convention.
