For the fifth consecutive year, Landstar is among the “Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For” according to the latest survey conducted by Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge.
The nomination process began in 2015, with transportation companies evaluated in a variety of categories including professional development opportunities, career path/advancement opportunities, annual turnover rate and their fleet safety record.
TCA and CarriersEdge interviewed nominees’ representatives and executives about their company’s direction, policies and programs. Those comments were compared to a selection of each fleet’s drivers or owner-operators surveyed and then incorporated into the fleet’s final score.
“Landstar’s owner-operators help make Landstar an industry leader by providing excellence in safety and service. We are proud that the owner-operators leased to Landstar feel they have freedom, opportunity and the support services they need to successfully run their own businesses,” said Landstar Executive Vice President of Capacity Development Rocco Davanzo.
This is the eighth year of the survey which is open to all U.S. and Canadian fleets that operate 10 or more trucks. To be considered, fleets must be nominated by one of their drivers, either a company driver or an owner-operator.
The 20 finalists will be divided by size and two overall winners will be announced during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 6-9 at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
