Truck driver turnover is costing the trucking industry millions of dollars annually. No other industry experiences as large a percentage rate of employee turnover as the trucking industry does. A conservative estimate of the cost to replace a single lost driver exceeds $2,000 for an average, dry van, company driver, and can run much higher with specialized carriers.
The associated costs of recruitment, office and clerical support, training, testing, down time of equipment, diminished productivity, etc., all add to the ever increasing cost to replace a lost driver. Percentage rates in excess of 50% are common in the industry. Just do the math and you'll get a very realistic idea what turnover is costing your company.
