In the 21st Century, the transportation industry faces a number of unique challenges — and C.A. Short Company can help you overcome each one.

By using technology already in place, such as Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) and GPS  systems, companies can monitor and measure driver outputs in a more efficient and cost-effective way. By lessening the risk of errors and non-compliance, these types of existing in-cab systems can also be used to engage drivers through the integration of C.A. Short Company’s People Are Everything™ Total Recognition Platform.

Three Key Areas Employee Engagement Can Improve

Increased Productivity & Efficiency

Inefficiency in the transportation industry can bankrupt a company.

In the trucking sector alone, idling costs more than $14 billion a year. Additionally, 28% of private freight trucks are not carrying any haul as they travel. For airlines, 32.6% of flight delays are due to circumstances within their control, costing them more than $8 billion annually. 

But, when your organization fully engages your employees, your company can experience 17% higher productivity, 40% fewer quality incidents, and 21% higher profitability.

Reduced Turnover

In December of last year, driver turnover for Large Truckload Fleets hit an unthinkable 95%. The worst part is, many analysts believe this number could be much higher, and it’s costing companies a fortune. Conservative estimates state that a trucking company will spend between $3,000 - $5,000 on replacing each truck driver who leaves.

Luckily, companies can cut turnover rates (and costs) significantly by implementing a quality employee engagement and recognition program. This results in lower turnover rates, reduced absenteeism, improved recruitment, and increased retention.

Improved Safety

In just one year, nearly 750 truckers were killed on the job, making it the deadliest occupation in the United States. That same year, trucks were responsible for around 88% of all freight transportation fatalities and around 12% of all highway fatalities.

Driver distraction is the primary culprit in many of these fatalities, and there is a solution — employee engagement. When an employee is engaged, driver distraction reduces by 70%, as does total recordable safety incidents.
