    What basis determined the order, pay, benefits, working conditions or whatever? Not having the "pleasure" of working for any of the named companies, I stand on the outside and "judge'. Having worked for union and non-union companies, local and otr, solo and team in the last 57 years, I would like to know just how does a business magazine judge a trucking company???

    In my opinion, the best trucking companies are history. When trucking companies were owned by families and not by corporations. When making a small profit each year instead of a "windfall". When an employee was looked upon as a "shareholder" instead of being viewed as a "tool".

    When Johnson Motor Lines out of Charlotte closed the doors in 1980 or Overnite got bought by Union Pacific and then by UPS, the best union and non-union trucking companies became history.
