Episode 106: The Future of Technology in the Trucking Industry with Gilbert Aspeitia
Retaining drivers has become the single biggest challenge for the trucking industry. According to ATA estimates, the industry is currently at 100% driver turnover, and the average cost of recruiting a single driver is approximately $6,000.
