National Logistics Management has announced a partnership with DriverSource, a specialized staffing source to the transportation industry. Through this partnership, NLM — a non-asset based, third-party logistics provider — is offering carriers a 5 percent discount on long-term leasing of drivers and direct hire placement. The partnership also is intended to help mitigate the effects of rising driver turnover rates, providing NLM carriers with an “on-demand” source for driver fulfillment.
“We are very pleased to work with DriverSource in expanding our suite of cost-saving programs offered to NLM’s preferred carriers,” says Scott Taylor, chief executive officer and founder of NLM. “As gas prices again climb significantly and with the driver turnover rate increasing, the DriverSource agreement helps our carriers navigate the difficult industry landscape. In the end, NLM customers also benefit, as any costs carriers save are transferred to the client.”
NLM and DriverSource will offer NLM’s preferred carriers industry-specific services around the clock, throughout the United States. In addition to its truck driver leasing program, DriverSource also offers SSP Placement Services, a logistics staffing service specializing in the recruitment and direct placement of critical employees such as upper level management and executive level positions.
“Providing our customers with the most reliable staffing service in the transportation industry is our number one priority,” says Jinan Dalloo, CEO and co-founder of DriverSource. “Our relationship with NLM allows us to further employ our expertise to a diverse range of clients.”
NLM’s affiliation with DriverSource is a part of NLM’s Partnership Advantage, an effort promoting collaboration among carriers and loyalty to customers by providing cost-saving incentives to approved carriers. Other Partnership Advantage programs include a fuel consumption reduction program called the EPA SmartWay Transport Partnership; and SuperFleet, a fuel discount program. NLM also offers a number of discount programs on lodging and acquiring safety and compliance materials.
