NEWMARKET, Ontario, Canada — Best Fleets to Drive For, a North America-wide evaluation of the best workplaces in the trucking industry, is hosting a new education and awards conference taking place April 8-9, 2024.
The event, to be held at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina, will recognize winning fleets and share insights from the 2024 winners, a news release stated.
“The Best Fleets to Drive For push the limits every year, and we wanted to celebrate them in a venue built around recognition of excellence,” said Jane Jazrawy, CEO of CarriersEdge. “The NASCAR Hall of Fame is a spectacular venue, and we’re looking forward to showcasing the winners in a place where you’re literally surrounded by greatness.”
Now in its 16th year, Best Fleets to Drive For is an annual survey and contest identifying the for-hire carriers providing the best workplace experience for their drivers.
Produced by CarriersEdge, a provider of online driver training, the program is open to all for-hire fleets operating 10 tractor-trailers or more in the US or Canada.
After being nominated by a driver or owner-operator, participating fleets are evaluated across a range of categories, including HR practices, operational strategy, professional development, and work/life balance. A comprehensive driver survey is included as well, with company responses and driver feedback compiled to identify the winners.
The Top 20 Best Fleets, along with the Fleets to Watch (honorable mentions) and those fleets entering the Hall of Fame, will be announced Jan. 30, 2024.
The Best Fleets to Drive For Education and Awards Conference will publicly recognize those winning fleets and unveil two overall winners in “large” and “small” fleet categories.
The Education and Awards Conference will also reveal what makes those fleets winners, sharing trends, innovative ideas and programs that have proven successful at fleets of all sizes.
With thousands of fleet responses and driver surveys reviewed through each year’s scoring process, the conference promises to provide a detailed look at what this year’s top performers are doing to keep their drivers happy and productive.
“Every year we collect a mountain of information through the Best Fleets evaluation process,” Jazrawy said. “We’ve been conducting webinars and writing articles for years, but those can only scratch the surface of what we find in the data. With this event, we’ll have the opportunity to share a lot more details of what makes the winning fleets successful, and what other fleets can do to adopt those ideas.”
As an event focused on fleet education and recognition, vendor presence will be limited.
“This conference will be about learning how to be a Best Fleet, and recognizing the companies that are already there,” added Jazrawy. “And thanks to the generous support of our sponsors EpicVue, TruckRight, and Netradyne, we’re able to do that.”
Registration is $299 per person and is open now.
