Trucking is fraught with inefficiencies. For example, according to the American Trucking Associations, a truck driver loses about an hour of drive time every day just looking for parking, account for the loss of about $5,500 in annual compensation.

Inefficiencies baked into transportation cause drivers a lot of stress, and stress leads to dissatisfaction and, ultimately, to turnover. 

CCJ, in partnership with Bestpass, will host a webinar with two top carriers sharing tips on how they've invested in drivers and it's led to keep drivers engaged and loyal using driver feedback, improving drivers’ efficiency and workflow, and innovative pay models.

This complimentary hour-long webinar, which will include a live Q&A with the panelists, will be held Thursday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. Central Time. Carriers can register here

A recorded on-demand version will be made available to all registrants so those interested in the topic but unavailable the day and time of the live webinar are still encouraged to register.
