Bennett Named 2018 “Fleet to Watch” by Best Fleets to Drive For®

February 2, 2018

Bennett Motor Express was recently nominated for the 2018 Best Fleets to Drive For®, becoming one of only five transport companies recognized as a “Fleet to Watch.” Each year, CarriersEdge® partners with the Truckload Carriers Association to identify the best workplaces for North American truck drivers. The annual Best Fleets to Drive For survey and contest awards top-tier carriers who exemplify excellence in innovation, and exhibit exceptional cultural values.

To be eligible, companies are required to have at least 10 or more trucks operating in the U.S. or Canada, and be nominated by a professional truck driver. Bennett’s senior management team and a random sampling of drivers completed an extensive 89-question survey about our practices as a company. This survey included questions regarding compensation, safety practices, benefits, equipment training and more. Participants also completed a 90-minute interview in front of a judicial panel.

After being nominated by one of our very own truck drivers, we had over 128 drivers participate in the survey; an overwhelming response and testament to the relationships we’ve built with our drivers.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to get candid feedback from our drivers. We’ll continue to embrace key improvements to our processes to ensure we make the list of Best Fleets to Drive For next year.”

Bennett Motor Express President, Jay Falladori, states

Since 1938, the Truckload Carriers Association has been a member-driven organization dedicated to representing the interests of truckload carriers throughout the country and ensuring the safety, quality and reliability of efficient transportation services. 

CarriersEdge launched in 2005 as a way to help improve the workplace experience for all drivers by implementing new technologies and trainings to support the trucking industry.
