4 Steps to Retain Drivers and Keep the Wheels Rolling

Originally aired: Tuesday, June 20, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

It’s harder to find drivers — especially good, safe drivers — than ever, which makes it more important than ever to keep them once you’ve found them. Heavy Duty Trucking Editor in Chief Deborah Lockridge will explore four ways to do just that, with the help of one fleet’s driver retention expert and sponsor Compli. We’ll look at four areas:

  1. How to do onboarding right — and do it efficiently
  2. Training drivers without wasting their time and your money
  3. Why ongoing communication is key to a driver-centric corporate culture
  4. Keeping drivers safe for their sake and yours

Learn how a mix of technology and personal attention can help you retain drivers without breaking the bank.

Speakers: 

Deborah Lockridge, Editor in Chief, Heavy Duty Trucking Magazine

Debbie Landry, Director of Driver Services, Halvor Lines, Inc.

John Piper, Sales Director, Transportation, Compli

The Dollars and Sense of Outsourcing Maintenance

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Fleets may consider outsourcing to major leasing companies due to their technological prowess and extensive service capabilities. Some fleets are drawn to the full-service leasing and contract maintenance services offered by these firms because lessors remain ‘brand neutral,’ so they can spec or service any make or model of truck.

This Heavy Duty Trucking webinar, sponsored by Ryder, will feature several fleet managers who have opted to outsource their truck spec’ing and/or maintenance requirements to a major truck lessor. Our speakers will discuss:

  • What led them to consider outsourcing
  • Why they opted to outsource to a leasing company
  • Their experience to date in terms of cost control, quality of service, and vehicle uptime

This panel will be moderated by HDT Executive Editor David Cullen and will include a question-and-answer session open to all attendees.

Panelists: 
Darry Stuart, President/CEO, DWS Fleet Management Services 

Dan Deppeler, VP Maintenance, Paper Transport, Inc.

David Duhamel, President, N & D Transportation
