FARMINGTON, NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 3, 2022 – Leonard’s Express – a leading transportation services provider offering refrigerated trucking, dry van, warehousing, and freight brokerage services – has been named one of North America’s top 20 fleets to drive for by the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge. The top fleets are comprised of for-hire trucking companies from across North America and are recognized for providing exemplary work environments for their professional truck drivers and employees.
To be considered for the Best Fleets program, companies operating 10 or more trucks had to receive a nomination from one of their 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. Surveys were also conducted to collect input from drivers and independent contractors working with the fleets.
“This is a very thorough process, and we are honored to be recognized for our dedication to providing the best possible workplace experience,” said Ken Johnson, Leonard’s Express CEO. “We have been involved with this program for a few years, and thanks to critical feedback from our drivers and other staff, we’re now one of only 20 fleets to receive this honor.”
“Over the years, thanks to our drivers’ honest feedback, we have learned what it takes to be one of the best,” Johnson explained. “This feedback has helped us make incremental improvements to our processes, policies and procedures. Receiving this award underscores our commitment to excellence – and having the programs to prove it.”
In making the announcement, CarriersEdge Chief Executive Officer Jane Jazrawy, said, “This year we saw more than 200 fleets nominated by their drivers for this program, and all participants were clearly stepping up their game.”
“I believe our improvements will continue, because our team is committed to being the best,” Johnson added. “They’ve worked especially hard to meet the tough challenges of the past two years. Leonard’s Express is truly fortunate to employ the finest people in our industry.”
