We are honored to be recognized along with SmartDrive in this year’s Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 List for our work in utilizing SmartDrive’s technology to implement an innovative scorecard program.
We are excited to announce that Nussbaum Transportation has been honored as the 2017 CCJ Innovator of the Year! This award comes to us in recognition of our efforts to create a driver scorecard that rewards drivers for the skills they exhibit rather than just their fuel economy statistics.
We can not express enough the importance of having confidence in your carrier. You need to know that when you ship with us your load will be handled with care and deliviered on time. What better way to gain that confidence than by giving you direct access to track your load. With our online customer tools, you can log in and see exactly where your load is and gain the peace of mind that everything is right where it needs to be.
We are very proud to announce that we have been recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking (HDT) as a top 50 green fleet in 2016. This marks the fourth year in a row that we have received this honor.
Fuel efficiency has long been a key focus of our team at Nussbaum and is something that we believe everyone can support from top management all the way to the drivers that make it all happen.
We are thrilled to announce that we have been recognized as a Top 100 Trucker for the 6th year in a row. This honor is both humbling and gratifying to everyone from management, operations, customer service, and our drivers who work hard each day to ensure quality reliable service for our customers. We'd like to thank Inbound Logistics for this recognition as we continue to grow as a reliable, quality service provider.
“We believe that every driver wants to be a professional. When you teach them how to drive more professionally, that is something they can be proud of and is a reflection of our culture and belief that they are not just a truck driver.”
- Brent Nussbaum, CEO

On December 16, 2015, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a ruling requiring all commercial truck and bus drivers to begin utilizing electronic logging devices (ELDs) by December 18, 2017. These devices automatically record driving time, monitor engine hours, vehicle movement, miles driven, and location information replacing the old system in which driving and on duty hours were logged with paper and pencil making them difficult to verify the accuracy.
Many factors must be considered when thinking of companies that qualify as a Best Fleet to Drive For. It is not enough to say that they excel in one particular area.
