TCA Drivers’ Choice Awards – The Elite Fleets to honor top carrier workplaces – Truck News

The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) has announced its driver satisfaction awards program called TCA Drivers’ Choice Awards – The Elite Fleets.

The program will celebrate and recognize the best carrier workplaces in the North American trucking industry based on professional driver feedback and satisfaction, according to a news release. Produced by TCA and in partnership with University of Denver’s Transportation & Supply Chain Institute, the awards will highlight those carriers who provide exceptional workplace experiences for their company drivers and independent contractors.

Only TCA carrier members can participate, nominations will open later this year and the top scoring carriers will be celebrated at TCA’s 2025 convention which is taking place March 15-18 in Phoenix, Ariz. After being nominated, carriers and their drivers will be asked to complete surveys which will be administered, overseen, and scored by the University of Denver’s Transportation & Supply Chain Institute.

In preparing for this new initiative and announcement, TCA surveyed its membership for their feedback and formed four working groups who helped provide input on the program’s structure, the attributes associated with satisfied drivers, and many other aspects of the program. TCA announced that it has secured three presenting co-sponsors for this program – EpicVue, TruckRight and Samsara.

Culture of excellence

TCA president Jim Ward said in a news release, “Recognizing and celebrating the best carrier workplaces in the North American trucking industry not only acknowledges the efforts of these companies but also promotes a culture of excellence and driver satisfaction within the industry. By partnering with a reputable institution like the University of Denver, the program ensures that the surveys and scoring are conducted impartially and with a high level of professionalism.”

David Fisher, executive director at University of Denver’s Transportation & Supply Chain Institute added, “The Transportation & Supply Chain Institute is thrilled to be able to support this program for the TCA and this industry. Trucking is the nation circulatory system. Anything the institute can do to support the betterment of the industry is part of our charter. Our process will reveal statistically important information that will help the TCA members drive excellence through their organizations. We are honored to have been selected as the partner for this significant initiative.”
