Bay & Bay Transportation is Named One of 20 Best Fleets to Drive For in North America

Winner of Best Overall Fleet will be Announced March 8, 2016

MINNEAPOLIS--()--For the second consecutive year, Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and CarriersEdge have selected Bay & Bay Transportation as one of the “2016 Best Fleets to Drive For.” The eighth annual survey and contest identifies 20 for-hire trucking companies in North America that provide the best workplace experiences for their employees and drivers.

“It shows our long-term commitment to making Bay & Bay one of the best trucking companies in business. It also demonstrates to our current and prospective drivers that we work hard to take care of them. That’s very important to us.”

Sam Anderson, Bay & Bay’s president and CEO, says the consecutive recognition is especially meaningful.

“It shows our long-term commitment to making Bay & Bay one of the best trucking companies in business. It also demonstrates to our current and prospective drivers that we work hard to take care of them. That’s very important to us.”

To be considered for the Best Fleets program, a company operating 10 trucks or more had to be nominated by one of its company drivers or owner operators. CarriersEdge then interviewed human resources representatives and executives of the nominated fleets about their corporate direction, policies, and programs. Nominated fleets were evaluated against a scoring matrix covering a variety of categories, such as:

  • Total compensation - including base pay, bonuses, vacation, sick day allotment
  • Health benefits
  • Pension plans
  • Professional development opportunities (training, coaching programs, etc.)
  • Career path/advancement opportunities

A selection of each fleet's drivers was also surveyed, with their feedback compared to management's and incorporated into the final score.

All top 20 fleets, including Bay & Bay, will be recognized March 8 at the TCA Annual Convention in Las Vegas. Contest official will announce one Best Overall Fleet for Large Carriers and one Best Overall Fleet for Small Carriers at that time.
