US truck driver turnover rate remains high, but for now seems to remain just below crisis levels
from Supply Chain Digest
Worries about a U.S. shortage of truck drivers continue on, with turnover of drivers in large truckload fleets near to 100 percent in Q4 and for the full year 2013, the American Trucking Associations reported. Of course, those numbers do not mean large fleets are completely turning over their base of drivers each year. What happens is the carriers may go through three or four new drivers to obtain one that sticks, driving the total turnover number to high levels. But many still say the driver situation remains a significant problem, and is just a bit of economic growth away from being something of a crisis for carriers and shippers.
