About the CCJ Top 250
Commercial Carrier Journal has ranked the top for-hire trucking companies since the late 1960s. The CCJ Top 250 represents the most comprehensive ranking of active carriers in the industry as it takes into account not only the revenues posted by a trucking company but also its fleet size and employment base.
Rankings based strictly on revenues often capture activities that have only an indirect relationship to transportation. Blending revenue, equipment and drivers also allows for a reasonable way to capture carriers that decline to disclose revenue.
The CCJ Top 250 ranking treats all carriers under one umbrella as a single entity; carriers with significant ownership by an individual, family or company but not organized under a single management team are treated separately. For a detailed explanation of the CCJ Top 250 ranking methodology, see “Ranking Methodology” below.
Our presentation of the CCJ Top 250 continues to evolve. Carriers that went out of business or were acquired by other companies in 2017 aren’t listed; instead, only active carriers are displayed.
The CCJ Top 250 begins with data provided by Randall- Reilly’s RigDig Business Intelligence based on data supplied by carriers to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on their required Form MCS-150 filings. Because this data can be – although rarely is – as much as a couple of years old and because the MCS-150 does not include information on revenues, all carriers included in the ranking were given an opportunity to review FMCSA data for freshness and to supply information not included on the form. In some cases, CCJ supplements its data with other official sources, such as reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
