Our world has undergone unprecedented change over the last several weeks. To understand how transportation companies have been impacted by COVID-19, we partnered with FATj.com to conduct an industry survey. Hundreds of recruitment professionals and business leaders responded, helping us distill the vast impact this world-changing pandemic has had specifically on driver recruitment.
This report summarizes how the widespread economic impacts have affected business, what recruitment challenges peers in transportation are facing, methods companies are using to cope with remote work, and more.
Ever wonder why drivers leave your company? Could your driver communication strategy be improved? When was the last time you asked your drivers for unscripted feedback? No matter how high your company’s driver turnover is, even a small improvement can dramatically (and positively) impact your bottom line. Gathering feedback directly from drivers is a foundational step for companies looking to improve their retention rate, but all too often it’s an afterthought. In collaboration with Workhound, this ebook shares tactics that will help you reverse the trend before your drivers move on.
By now, most carriers have a good handle on the basic requirements of the FMCSA’s Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse final rule. They know they’ll need to upload some violation data, obtain a pre-employment query on new drivers, and perform annual queries on all drivers, and they know that driver consent is required and that non-compliance is not an option. However, there are many components beyond the basic compliance questions that need to be addressed in the weeks and months to come. This ebook digs deeper – beyond basic compliance questions – and investigates some of the lesser noticed moving parts that may complicate a company’s DOT drug and alcohol testing program.
A fundamental shift in how carriers recruit and qualify drivers will occur on January 6, 2020. Safety will improve as drug and/or alcohol violations will be easier to identify, and as drivers who are ineligible to operate commercial motor vehicles are promptly removed from their driving responsibilities as a result. However, this improvement will come with a cost as carriers adapt to new rules. This ebook explores how companies need to prepare.
Regardless of how you’re personally approaching the issue, the trucking industry is now officially part of the national debate stage.

Last Fall, the American Trucking Associations (ATA) created a Workforce Development Committee to help resolve the industry’s driver shortage issue. The Committee helped craft the language of a bill, the DRIVE-Safe Act (H.R.5358), that was introduced in the House of Representatives in late March 2018. Find out how DriverReach’s Founder & CEO, Jeremy Reymer, a member of the Committee, is helping to design a real solution to the problems surrounding the industry’s driver shortage.
