Clarissa Hawes, senior editor at FreightWaves, breaks down some recent headlines in the trucking industry, including how vaccine mandates might impact an ongoing shortage of truckers and how trucking impacts the national supply chain.
In this episode, our guest is Ellen Voie, President, CEO, and Founder of Women in Trucking. She discusses how her organization works to attract women into the trucking industry. She shares what barriers remain and how the industry can help to overcome them to open their truck doors to more women drivers.As any shipper knows, tight capacity remains in the freight markets — and it looks like this situation will be with us for quite some time to come. What are some of the creative things carriers are doing to open capacity, and what can shippers do to make their freight more attractive to carriers and thus become shippers of choice?Supply chain used to be a very male-dominated industry, but that has changed quite a bit over the past decade. There are more women in leadership roles than ever before. Today we look at what is being done to bring more women into the supply chain profession and what opportunities there are to keep women moving forward in their careers.Articles and resources mentioned in this episode:Women in TruckingCarriers say tractor and trailer shortages will linger for another yearIn tight freight markets, retailers and manufacturers woo valuable truckersAdvancing women in supply chainVisit DCVelocity.com for the latest news.

TRUCKERS & COMPANIES LYING TO EACH OTHER. There is a major problem in the Trucking Industry. Some truckers are constantly lying to trucking companies. Then there's the trucking companies that lye to truck drivers. Not every trucker is a liar and not every trucking company is a liar, but there are enough on both sides that have really made the industry smell. Lies that Drivers Tell. How long they have been working for a past company. Some drivers exaggerate about their work history. Some drivers lie about their MVR. Some driver lie about their accident history or their criminal background. Look the bottom line is, any good carrier is going to check you out, so just be up front. The next time you interview for a driving job, just start out with, "Let me be ip front about everything before I waist your time Mr. recruiter. You will gain much respect and you have a better chance of a carrier trying to help you verses chalking you up to "just another liar". I do have to keep reminding everyone hearing the podcast, that not all drivers lie, this segment is about the ones that do. Lies that tricking companies tell. We got a brand new Peterbilt we are sticking you in. Will get you home every week, guaranteed. We have a dedicated run we are putting you on if you sign up. Will keep you south. These are some blatant lies that carriers say to drivers to bait them in. Again I will remind everyone that not all carriers intentionally lie to drivers, only the desperate and bad carriers do this. Advice to truckers that lie. When searching for a job, if you are up front with each carrier about something in your past, you will save allot of time by getting the thing that you are worried about, out in the open, with in 30 seconds of each call. There are plenty of carriers that are willing to help you but you sure can waist allot of time trying to fool all the carriers. Advice to Carriers that lie. Reach into your pocket and spend the money needed to find enough drivers interview. If you talk to enough drivers and are honest, you most likely will find a driver that willing to give you a chance. You might also consider upping your pay or investing in better trucks or even hiring a salesmen to find freight that meets the needs of potential drivers. Either way, you have to realize that, in order to have a successful trucking company these days, one must take account that a trucking company is made of its drivers more than anything.

If, like us, you love hearing how industries outside of trucking are handling recruitment and retention, then you aren't going to want to miss this latest episode of Recruit and Retain. Joining Chad today is Joretta Nelson, vice chairman and owner of Credo, a company dedicated to helping higher education establishments thrive in order to impact the success of students. “Credo has been around for 25 years. We started out as a campus planning and architecture firm, specifically working with Independent Colleges. And we quickly realised that our work would have to be informed by good strategy and an understanding of student success, to get campuses to spend their resources wisely.” Much of this conversation revolves around Credo's retention model and how what the higher education industry is doing to retain students, to encourage them to stick with their education, directly relates to trucking and what carriers can do to provide a better experience for their drivers, encouraging retention. Credo has taken 50 years of research into what it takes to retain students in education and distilled it down to how the entire campus, as a whole, could really focus on student success, because what it boils down to at the end of the day is this - if students don't graduate, that impacts the whole world. “We developed a framework to think about it. And we've been out doing this work now, grabbing a campus as a whole and saying, let's stand alongside the leadership both at the top and in the middle, and really transform the way the campus thinks about [student retention].” To find out more about how retention in trucking aligns with retention in higher education, and to learn new ways for your carrier to retain drivers, download and listen to this fascinating episode. What you'll learn about in this episode: Why retention in higher education is so complicated How higher education and trucking align The universal dilemma of retention Why you want fulfilled human beings as drivers What carriers can do to help drivers thrive How to connect with Joretta Nelson: Joretta Nelson - Credo Higher Education Consulting Team

The story of a crowded parking lot: slow stops, the lack of reserved spots, and the race to an empty space. We've all been there, but what if the lack of a parking spot had an effect on how well you did your job? Or, even made it hard for you to fill basic human needs - like eating or sleeping? When the pandemic started, drivers faced crowded parking lots, closed rest areas, and minimal road side support. And now, almost a year and a half later, they still face the fear of not finding a place to park, which means having no place to rest. In this episode, host Michael Freeze seeks answers to this wearying question from those on the forefront of research and legislative action.

In 2017, a group of trucking and logistics company owners met in Nogales, Arizona. They were worried because federal authorities had begun enforcing regulations that bar Mexican truck drivers with B-1 visas from hauling cargo within the U.S. “Long story short, if we don’t fix this soon, 100 companies will close,” Jimmy Watson Jr. told Nogales International newspaper. The next year his father was arrested and charged with illegally employing drivers from Mexico.This week’s episode of Long-Haul Crime Log investigates one of the most controversial issues in cross-border trucking: cabotage violations.

Finding a job in the trucking industry: You have the talent ambition and drive, but how can you get in the right room? In front of the right people? People of color are asking themselves these questions more often than not. Currently, only 14.3% of the truck driver population is made up of African Americans, followed by 13% Hispanic, and 7% Asian. In this episode, host Michael Freeze wonders what industry leaders are doing to increase those percentages in driving roles, leadership positions, and entrepreneurial opportunities. Turns out, it has a lot to do with being in the right room at the right time, but who is opening those doors? Find out, as we talk to two trucking industry experts who have implemented their own practices that are contributing to a more diverse work community.

Shifting factors in the trucking industry — like fewer drivers, lower capacity, and rising demand — will likely result in 8-15% higher contract rates this year, according to U.S. Xpress.
