Top of their game. The Fleet Owner Fleet of the Year Awards salute fleets — one each from the for-hire, private and vocational ranks of trucking — selected by the editors for raising the bar for innovative management.

Fleet Owner recognizes each winning fleet for achievements that unequivocally indicate excellence in management is at work.

That is why nominations are not sought and these awards are not linked to any industry association or influenced by any outside group.

The challenges facing for-hire, private and vocational fleets vary widely, but our winners share the common attribute we applaud with Fleet Owner's fifth annual Fleet of the Year Awards — significant innovation in truck fleet management.
