Eighty-one trucking and logistics companies met the benchmarks for human resource practices measured by Trucking HR Canada’s Top Fleet Employers program.

Candidates are scored on factors such as recruitment and retention practices, workplace culture, compensation, training and skills development, and innovative HR practices.

Companies that meet the criteria for at least five years earn Top Fleet Employer of Distinction status.

Joining this particular list in 2022 are: Arrow Transportation Systems; Bandstra Transport Systems; Beyond transportation; Caron transportation systems; Coastal Pacific Xpress; Fortigo Freight Services; Polaris Transportation Group; and RST and Sunbury Transport.

“As our sector continues to face labor shortages, Top Fleet Employers is leading the industry in providing exceptional places to work for their employees, attracting the next generation of the world’s best talent. Canada,” Angela Splinter, CEO of Trucking HR Canada, said in a statement.

Applications will be accepted for the program’s 10th anniversary this summer.

Trucking HR Canada recognized 77 fleets last year and presented awards in 13 categories at the Top Fleet Employers Awards Gala.

The 2022 Top Fleet Employers Awards Gala will take place in Toronto on October 13.
