Younger Truck Drivers Slightly More Prone to Turnover

A new study by Stay Metrics has found younger drivers are only slightly more prone to leaving a carrier within the first six months than their middle-aged counterparts. On average nearly 60% of all drivers in every age group will leave their carrier within the first six months, and as much as 35% will leave within the first 90 days, reports the driver retention consulting and analytics firm. Turnover is a critical problem in the trucking industry, with increased demand and decreasing capacity the need for drivers is as great as ever.
