TCA Names Top Two Winners of “2020 Best Fleets to Drive For” Contest
Orlando, FL – The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA), and its partner CarriersEdge, have unveiled the overall winners of the 2020 Best Fleets to Drive For contest and survey.
The winners were announced on Monday during TCA’s Annual Convention at the Gaylord Palms Resort.
The Best Overall Fleet in the small carrier category was presented to Boyle Transportation, of Billerica, MA.
The Best Overall Fleet in the large carrier category was presented to Nussbaum Transportation, of Hudson, IL.
Now in its 12th year, the Best Fleets to Drive For Contest is an annual survey and contest that recognizes North American for-hire trucking companies who provide the best workplace experience for their drivers.
To be considered, fleets must be nominated by a company driver or independent contractor working with them, after which they are evaluated across a broad range of categories reflecting current best practices in human resources.
The contest accepts nominations from Labor Day to Halloween each year.
Annually, each January, TCA and CarriersEdge announces its Top 20 Best Fleets to Drive For winners which are categorized according to size.
The highest scoring fleet in each category is named an overall winner during TCA’s Annual Convention each spring.
Both Boyle Transportation and Nussbaum Transportation have been named to the Best Fleets Top 20 multiple times, with Nussbaum recently winning the 2019 Best Overall Fleet in the small carrier category.
The categorization is based on how the Top 20 is broken down according to fleet size.
Nussbaum Transportation, with 442 drivers, was noted for its approach to new technology adoption, where a focus on personal needs ensures the enhancements optimize, rather than disrupt, driver efficiency.

Lyboldt also congratulated Nussbaum for winning for the second consecutive year calling it a “difficult feat.”
The Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest is open to any fleet operating 10 or more trucks, regardless of TCA membership status.
Nominated fleets are evaluated in areas such as: driver compensation, pension and benefits, professional development, driver and community support, and safety record.
