Slowing down and focusing on finding drivers that fit your fleet’s corporate culture and operations can save you money long-term. While it is tempting to hire CDL holders as fast as they can be found, particularly in the face of the ever-widening driver shortage, that will only drive up driver churn. Increased driver churn drives up the cost of recruitment and training, as well as costs involved in bringing on drivers less likely to drive as fuel-efficiently and safely as possible. Put simply, don’t hire your turnover. HDT Executive Editor David Cullen will share insights from fleets that have found hiring fewer drivers – the right drivers – can help you keep more of them.
