The cost of turnover for carriers is high. If the cost of hiring a driver averages $5,000, a company with 200 drivers and a 100 percent turnover rate would spend $1 million a year on recruitment alone. High turnover also makes it difficult for fleets to operate efficiently, maximize utilization of tractors and trailers, and meet customers’ service expectations. According to the ATA, driver turnover at large truckload carriers peaked in the second quarter of 2012 at a 106 percent rate. Now add in the costs of a human resources department, payroll processing, garnishment processing, and benefits administration. The cost of maintaining this highly specialized infrastructure for in-house employment is truly substantial.
