American Central Transport Recognized As Top 20 Best Fleet To Drive For

February 15, 2018

(KANSAS CITY, MO) — American Central Transport (ACT) has been named one of the nation’s 2018 Best Fleets To Drive For by CarriersEdge in partnership with The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA).

The Best Fleets To Drive For designation is an annual survey and independent evaluation that recognizes the top 20 U. S. for-hire carriers that provide the best workplaces for their drivers.

“ACT has made significant investments in driver programs and those efforts are delivering unmistakable results,” said Mark Murrell of CarriersEdge. “Driver satisfaction at the company is over 95%!”

“This is a validation of all that we have worked toward for years,” said Phil Wilt, ACT’s President and COO. “Our goal has always been to be the company that pays better, treats its drivers better, and provides a workplace that truly does live up to our core values of safety, integrity, respect, accountability and family.”

ACT successfully passed through a four-stage evaluation to be eligible to compete for this award. The company first had to be nominated by a current company driver or independent contractor. Next, the company completed evaluation and interview phases that looked at its company programs & policies, safety performance, career path opportunities as well as their total pay package, health benefits, driver satisfaction, and other factors. Finally, ACT drivers gave feedback on their company through an independent driver survey.


American Central Transport, Inc. is a dry van truckload carrier serving major shippers throughout the eastern half of the United States. Founded in 1926 as E.K. Motor Service, the company was later renamed after it was purchased by the Kretsinger family, who still run it today. ACT has been frequently recognized for its quality and premium service, signified by its “Raising the Standard” motto.
