Truck Drivers Pay will need to increase

With Truck drivers in high demand during the Pandemic and no end in sight to the shortage of goods in Supermarkets throughout the U.S, one of the critical issues in the trucking industry is not being talked about enough, and that’s driver pay. As a result, the trucking industry as a whole has suffered from low retention rates.

Many major trucking companies have a substantial amount of full-time staff just focused on hiring because they understand that truckers will eventually leave the company. Like a revolving door, many truckers exit the industry because of low pay increases or ones they were promised that never materialize.

Low retention rate is the Trucking industries dirty little secret. So pay up or get used to the low truck driver retention rate.
