Dates Announced for 2014 ‘Best Fleets to Drive For’ Seminar Series

CarriersEdge, the leading provider of online driver improvement programs, today announced dates for the 2014 Best Fleets to Drive For Seminar Series. The series of half-day seminars will visit 10 cities across Canada, sharing the innovative ideas and best practices of the fleets identified as this year’s Best Fleets to Drive For.

Best Fleets to Drive For is an annual survey and contest conducted by the Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge. It identifies the North American for-hire trucking companies that provide the best workplace experiences for company drivers and owner-operators. Nominated fleets are evaluated on the range and depth of programs being offered, the overall effectiveness of those programs across key metrics, and the responses of surveyed drivers. Fleets with the best overall scores are named Best Fleets to Drive For. 

The Best Fleets to Drive For Seminar Series presents data collected during that process, including industry trends, innovative programs, and case studies of the Canadian and U.S. winners. 

 Specific topics to be included in the 2014 edition of the series include:

  • How technology is changing the total work experience for drivers
  • What drivers want to see in a bonus program
  • The connection between public image programs and driver retention
  • The new standard of wellness across the industry

 “The fleets that participated in the 2014 edition of Best Fleets to Drive For have really stepped up their game in terms of programs for their drivers”, said Mark Murrell, President of CarriersEdge. “With increasing focus on performance management, driver efficiency, and work/life balance, this year’s fleets provided us plenty of exciting things to share in the seminar series.” 

Returning as a tour sponsor for 2014 is Transportation Media, the leading information provider for Canada’s transportation industry, who will be recording selected events for their award-winning video series Transportation Matters.
