Fleet management needs to continue this upward trend of higher regard for drivers by effectively communicating to individual operators and fleet teams on the topics of safety, fuel efficiency, productivity and satisfaction of the driver. Through transferring the focus of the fleet from goals to the people responsible for goal completion, managers can effectively increase productivity and employee retention. This can be accomplished through provision of proactive insight on responsibilities as well as allowing a back-and-forth line of communication so that operators can provide feedback on their satisfaction with, and desires from the company.

These drivers have long hours away from loved ones, in unhealthy environments so that the rest of the country can survive on the goods being delivered. As summer comes to a close this weekend, if you find yourself at a rest stop, take a moment to thank the individuals that enable many of us to live in a consistent, happy lifestyle.
