As trucking turnover figures fluctuate through 2018 with industry high turnover rates, Forward Air LTL remains well under the industry turnover average by 55.3 percent. “According to the ATA’s latest Trucking Activity Report, which was released Wednesday, the annualized turnover rate at large truckload carriers jumped four percentage points in the second quarter of the year to 98 percent, the highest point since the fourth quarter of 2015.” 1
How do we keep low turnover you might ask – it’s all about culture and the many opportunities we have available to support your career aspirations. When we asked Jenni Kebler, a Team Owner Operator with Forward Air since March of 2017, what her favorite thing about Forward Air is, she was quick to say, “The smiles on everyone’s faces when you see them and the happiness you hear in their voices when you call any department. Makes Forward Air a breath of fresh air to be in partnership with.” Then we asked Jeremy Christensen his top 3 benefits Forward Air provides him, he replied, “Good pay, good home time, and friendly staff.”
Coupling good pay and home time together is a great place to start on boosting company culture, but adding in all the truck driving jobs we have available is the starting point to a solid foundation. With options to go over the road and be home often, choose a dedicated lane, run regionally, grow a fleet, become an independent contractor, or be a company driver; Forward Air is able to provide an environment that is centered on driver’s success – Allowing us to keep turnover low!
