OTTAWA, Ont. — Eight of the top 20 fleets recognized through the first ever Best Fleets to Drive For survey are Canadian, according to organizers.
The inaugural survey, conducted by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge, asked company drivers and owner/operators to nominate the best North American carriers to work for.
Nominated carriers were evaluated on the range and depth of programs being offered, the effectiveness of those programs across key metrics and the responses of surveyed drivers, according to Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge. The top-ranking Canadian carriers included:
Creekbank Transport, Mississauga, Ont; Erb International, New Hamburg, Ont.; Kindersley Transport, Saskatoon, Sask.; Laidlaw Carriers Van, Guelph, Ont.; MacKinnon Transport, Guelph, Ont.; Shulist Logistics, King City, Ont.; TransX Group, Winnipeg, Man.; and Yanke Group, Saskatoon, Sask.
“The Canadian fleets making the list demonstrate that great workplaces come in all sizes”, said Murrell. “Whether they have 12 trucks or 1,200, these fleets are running outstanding programs for their drivers, and seeing obvious results as well.”
