Driver Turnover Up, ATA Says


The American Trucking Associations released new data Jan. 28 on driver turnover at large truckload carriers that showed the turnover rate was up a point to 97% in the third quarter last year.

At less-than-truckload carriers, turnover was also up, rising to 13% from 11% the previous quarter, ATA said. For small truckload fleets, turnover was unchanged at 94% in Q3.

The driver market remains tight, according to ATA’s chief economist Bob Costello, and that continued economic growth could make the driver shortage more acute in coming months.
