The trucking and transportation industry dominated Deloitte’s list of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, with thirty companies total making the cut.
Now in its 25th year, the program, which celebrates the top private businesses in Canada with revenue totalling more than $15 million, scores applicants on strategy and vision, its investment in capabilities like people and systems, and its commitment to talent.
The companies chosen fall into one of four categories: new, returning winners (been on the list for 2-3 years running), gold winners (been on the list for 4-6 years running) and platinum winners (been on the list for seven or more years).
