Although labor issues remain a significant challenge for respondents in the National Private Truck Council's annual survey, they continued to report retention and turnover performance far better than their for-hire colleagues.
(The latest American Trucking Associations turnover figures released, from the third quarter of 2019, showed turnover at large truckload fleets at an annualized rate of 96%, and 73% for smaller fleets.)
However, driver turnover continued to creep up, this year reaching close to an all-time high of 18.5%. For comparison purposes, last year, private fleets reported turnover of 16.9%, up a point and a half over the previous year’s 15.4% average turnover.
