Today, Grand Island Express was named one of the Top 20 ‘Best Fleets To Drive For’ of 2019! This is our 8th consecutive year of winning this award. The award is presented by the TCA and Carriers Edge.
We are honored and excited by the award at Grand Island Express. The award is all driver driven. Our drivers nominate us for the award, they are the ones who take the survey about our company, they are the ones who proudly support us and make us a successful OTR (over the road) carrier because of what they do for us.
“They treat all drivers like they’re number one.”
