“Nussbaum is proud to announce that it has been selected by the Truckload Carriers Association and Carriers Edge as a 2021 Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For for the seventh consecutive year. We want to thank our employee-owners for delivering outstanding service to our shipper partners, therefore, contributing to the success of Nussbaum's seventy-five-year-old history.”Brent NussbaumCEO
For the 7th year in a row, Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have named Nussbaum one of the top 20, 2021 Best Fleets to Drive For. Seven years on this list and going strong – wow. We are humbled and excited to announce this accomplishment. It’s a bright spot in what have been such unprecedented times.
To be a Best Fleet to Drive For seven years running has us in awe. Each year we can adjoin that title with our name is another year of exceptionality in the industry. It’s exciting to be able to reveal this accomplishment again for 2021. Being a Best Fleet to Drive For was a feat the first time, and attaining it each additional year for seven years, has grown us in elite drivers, distinctive programs, and being an employer that people are proud to represent.
Jeremy Stickling, Chief Administrative Officer, remarks, “Nussbaum has always viewed the ‘Best Fleets To Drive For’ contest as a barometer rather than a final destination. It serves as a reminder to keep our focus on our driver fleet and to never get complacent.”
According to CarriersEdge and the TCA, to be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating ten or more trucks have to receive a nomination from at least one of their company drivers or owner-operators. The fleets are then evaluated using a scoring matrix covering various categories, including total compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria.
That 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 advance in engagement and growth opportunities, attract and retain remarkable drivers, and strive to be top tier in the industry.
“We are thankful to receive this honor for the 7th year in a row, and thankful to the many dedicated professionals at Nussbaum who make an honor like this possible in the first place!”Jeremy SticklingChief Administrative Officer
About Best Fleets to Driver 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.
