  • Logikor is down to less than 10 trucks they lost most of their contracts and Challenger road test drivers every day from what I see I drive for TST Overland Express out of Cambridge and I can’t complain my hours are 9 to 5:30. I’m a senior guy so I’m lucky to have those hours but when it comes to driver retention I don’t think many companies could beat us

  • It’s the annual BS awards again. This is nothing more than just an advertisement for these carriers. It’s bogus recognition.

    First off, most of these outfits are constantly hiring. That doesn’t come as a red flag to enough people. If these companies had such a great culture and the whole nine, why wouldn’t they be plush with drivers? They aren’t the industry’s best kept secret. See for yourself in the reviews on Indeed or Glassdoor.

    • We take pride in how we work with our drivers and treat them as the frontline of our business . We were put through a very thorough vetting on how we interact with our drivers and proudly wear this badge of honor that Trucking HR has approved .
