6 Years as a Best Fleet to Drive For

For the 6th year in a row, Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have named Nussbaum one of the top 20, 2020 Best Fleets to Drive For. Congratulations to our Nussbaum Family! This award does not target one specific department – it is for the drivers, the maintenance staff, and the office staff as a unit, working together to make Nussbaum a stand-out place. We could not receive an honorable recognition like this without noting the exact reason we are one of the 2020 Best Fleets to Drive For – the outstanding, purpose-driven people that make up Nussbaum Transportation.

Being a Best Fleet to Drive For was a feat the first time, and attaining it each additional year for six years, has grown us in supreme drivers, distinctive relationships, and being an employer that people are proud to represent.

According to CarriersEdge and the TCA, to be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating ten or more trucks had to receive a nomination from at least one of their company drivers or owner-operators. The fleets were then evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, including total compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria.

“Now in its 12th year, the program continues to showcase the best fleets in the industry,” said CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy. “These carriers constantly raise the bar when it comes to driver satisfaction, innovative programs, and a superior work environment.”

And that is what makes this award so meaningful year after year. Nussbaum isn’t guaranteed a spot in the Best Fleets to Drive For just because we made the cut the first year. Each year, we raise the bar by rolling out new programs, ensuring driver satisfaction, and cultivating a place to work that attracts and retains the best in the business.

With the new additions of Certified RED, the Road Captains, the driver advisory board, Terminal Exchange the podcast, and the continued transparency in touchpoint calls between Nussbaum executives and drivers, we have worked hard this year to excel. And with unmatched employee-owners, we’re proud to provide the exceptional workplace that is Nussbaum Transportation.

About Best Fleets to Drive For

Best Fleets to Drive For was launched in the summer of 2008 by CarriersEdge and Truckload Carriers Association and runs through the fall and winter each year. The program identifies trends, shares best practices, and publicly recognizes the for-hire carriers providing the best workplaces for their drivers.

Best Fleets to Drive For is open to any for-hire trucking company operating ten trucks or more in the US or Canada. Fleets do not have to be members of TCA to participate, and there’s no cost to participate. To be considered, fleets must be nominated by a driver or independent contractor currently working with them, then complete the evaluation process within prescribed timelines.
