Owner Operator News:
Quality Shortage

As demand for trucks to haul freight continues to increase, many fleets are increasing their recruiting efforts and sign-on bonuses will soon be back with a vengeance. However, the recent recession has reduced the number of experienced drivers on the road today and new regulations such as CSA 2010 will continue to impact the number of quality drivers available.

If you survived the recession, then you’ve been tested and made it when a lot of other owner operators didn’t. One of those tough decisions you had to make was to pick a good carrier and stick with them. You counted on them when things were tough. That was smart then and should be smart now. Recruiting ads, sign-on bonuses and new compensation packages will make it tempting to switch, but the cost to switch can be high. Make sure you have all the facts before risking your business. 

But it’s not just about making smart decisions; it’s about being the best. Owner operators are already a cut above the rest and quality drivers will be much more in demand. You’ve set yourself apart from the pack during the recession but a focus on quality shouldn’t stop because the economy is turning around. Take stock of your business and yourself. What are you doing well? What could be improved? Quality is a personal choice and it’s all up to you.
