February 21, 2011

Houston, TX- The Truckload Carrier Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge announced Trimac Transportation as a winner of the 2011 Best Fleets to Drive For award. The award recognizes North American carriers whom provide the best work environments for their drivers and operate at least 10 or more trucks.

Nominations poured in during the fall of 2010. A series of interviews, conducted by CarriersEdge, with human resource representatives and executives took place evaluating Trimac’s corporate direction, policies, and programs.

“After each contest and survey cycle, we compile and widely publicize the best practices of each winning fleet. The results are a snapshot of excellence. It’s only natural for drivers and fleets to want to be a part of this,” says John Kaburick, chairman of TCA. The following scoring matrix came into play as Trimac soared to the Top 20 list, making the final cut.
