For 7 years, the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have conducted an annual survey to seek out the best trucking companies in North America. This year, Bay & Bay Transportation was selected as one of the ‘Best Fleets to Drive For’ in 2015.
Only 20 for-hire trucking companies across the continent are selected for this honor. To even be considered, the company must be operating with at least 10 trucks or more, and be nominated by one of the current company drivers or owner-operators. After nomination, the HR department was interviewed and assessed based on the following:
- Compensation – including pay, bonuses, vacation, and sick days
- Health benefits and pension plans
- Professional development and advancement opportunities
- Team building and driver community
- Driver turnover rate
- Fleet safety record
- Commitment to employee growth and continued improvement
Additionally, a small selection of each nominee’s drivers was surveyed to compare to the feedback from the management side. This portion is just a small part of the contest to determine the best fleets in North America.
The next phase of the contest will divide the fleets into small and large categories, from which two winners will be selected. The overall winners will be announced on March 10. You can follow the clues posted on the days leading up to the awards ceremony by following the hashtag #BestFleets15 on the TCA’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.
We are very excited about this distinguished award and can’t wait to see what else the TCA has in store for the #BestFleets15! We’d also like to extend a special thank you to the employees who nominated Bay & Bay Transportation. Without all of your hard work and dedication, we wouldn’t be able to provide the high quality transportation services that we are known for today.
