MARKHAM, Ont. — CarriersEdge is launching a free seminar series in conjunction with its Best Fleets to Drive For competition.
The series will consist of half-day seminars in cities across Canada, Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge announced this morning at the Driving for Profit seminar series.
The series will provide tips and tricks from the 20 US and Canadian fleets that were identified as this year’s “best fleets to drive for.” The survey, which is conducted by CarriersEdge and the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA), allows drivers to nominate their carrier as a ‘best fleet to drive for.’ A series of criteria are then used to evaluate the fleets and whittle the list down to the top 20.
The contest aims to identify which fleets offer the best workplace experiences for company drivers and owner/operators.
Murrell said the seminar series will share best practices that were collected during the nomination and evaluation processes. They will feature details on programs that improve the operating efficiencies of both large and small fleets.
“No matter what the economic climate, fleets that create a great work experience for their drivers are more productive and more profitable,” said Murrell. “The 2009 Best Fleets to Drive For winners demonstrated that there are lots of unique and effective programs out there, and we’re very excited to be sharing those ideas across the country with this seminar series.”
The tour includes: Saskatoon, May 26; Winnipeg, May 28; Toronto, May 30 (as part of the Road Today Truck Show); Calgary, June 2; Abbotsford, June 3; Edmonton, June 5; and Moncton, June 11.
