How to Prevent Your Drivers from Leaving

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. There are many reasons why drivers leave, these include: low pay, ugly freight, home time issues, equipment, support, mistreatment by management, and the list goes on. There are also many reasons why drivers stay.

In this presentation, Mark Dixon looks at what the successful companies are doing right and what the not so successful companies are doing wrong in their attempts to keep a steady employment of their driver pool. Mark will reveal over 100 points to consider...some of them are obvious...some not so obvious. He will present ideas and practices that begin from the time of recruitment, orientation, training, and carry through to your seasoned drivers as well.
