On January 29, 2019, TransLand was named one of "The Top 5 Fleets to Watch" by Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge.
To be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating 10 or more trucks had to receive a nomination from at least one of their company drivers or owner operators. The fleets were then evaluated using a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, including total compensation, health benefits, performance management, professional development, and career path/advancement opportunities, among other criteria. Driver surveys were also conducted to collect input from drivers and independent contractors working with the fleets.
According to John Lyboldt, TCA's president, the Best Fleets program and its annual list of the Top 20 has grown to become one of the most anticipated announcements in the industry. ""The winners have set the bar high when it comes to keeping their professional truck drivers engaged while also providing a superior work environment. This coveted contest reveals the tremendous efforts put forth by these driver-centric companies."
"We do a very thorough analysis and take a deep dive into each fleet's programs," mentioned Jazrawy. "An important component in the scoring process is analyzing driver feedback on the company and then comparing it with management's comments. The two need to align in order for fleets to score well. This year's Top 20 had an average driver satisfaction rate over 91%, and annual driver turnover under 35%, so what they're doing is obviously working."
