Recruiting and Retaining Talent Amidst the Driver Shortage

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

The American Trucking Associations (ATA) estimate the trucking industry is currently short about 55,000 professional drivers. But with nearly 70 percent of all goods in North America being shipped on trucks, trucking companies know they need to have a strong strategy in place to attract and keep their drivers. Discovering the secret to keeping drivers happy lies in listening to the voices of professional truck drivers.

In this webinar, Ryder experts unveil what professional truck drivers really want and how addressing their needs can help ease the shortage. The answers are not what you think.

Learning Objectives:

  • What truck drivers really want from their employers
  • Best practices to recruit and retain drivers
  • How some companies are improving work conditions for drivers
  • How the right strategy can ease turnover and build a strong pool of talent for your company

Speaker:

4 ELD Myths and What You Should Know About Bundled Solutions

Originally aired: Thursday, June 22, 2017 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

With any new, complicated set of regulations there can be plenty of confusion. In the case of how fleets need to implement electronic logging devices (ELDs) to be in compliance with the ELD mandate, myths abound — and need dispelling:

  • Myth #1: Every ELD Vendor Who Is Certified Is Really Certified
  • Myth #2: Device Registration = Verification
  • Myth #3: If I Purchase a Non-Compliant Device from a Provider, They Will Replace it — No Sweat!
  • Myth #4: I’ll Wait ‘Til November to Find A Solution. I Have Plenty of Time — and How Hard Can it Be?

Adding to the complication is considering the option of a bundled ELD/GPS tracking solution. But bundling has a number of advantages, among them the ability to have all driver and vehicle data provided in a single platform, giving added transparency to the fleet manager and drivers.

Join us for this webinar and learn how a bundled solution can help you seamlessly comply with the regulations, and give you a deeper insight into your fleet operations in a single, integrated data stream — improving operations, reporting, and the bottom line.

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.

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.
