How to Lower Your Truck Driver Turnover Rate

The trucking industry has over a 100 percent turnover rate for truck drivers.

To put it into perspective, imagine you run a trucking operation with 50 drivers. A 100 percent turnover rate means you will need to bring in 50 new drivers in a one year time period just to maintain the same number of 50 drivers in your fleet.

So, how does a trucking company decrease it’s driver turnover rate and increase driver retention?
