For the sixth consecutive year, Landstar is among the “Top 20 Fleets to Drive For” according to the latest survey conducted by Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge.
The nomination process began in 2016, with transportation companies evaluated in a variety of categories including professional development opportunities, career path/advancement opportunities, annual turnover rates and fleet safety record.
TCA and CarriersEdge interviewed each nominee’s 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.
“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. “We appreciate all that Landstar owner-operators do to provide customers with excellence in safety and service, helping to make Landstar an industry leader.”
This is the ninth 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 either a company driver or an owner-operator.
According to the TCA, phase two of the evaluation will divide the highest scoring fleets into small and large categories, from which two overall winners will be selected. The overall winners will be announced during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 26-29, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.
