Onboarding and Training During COVID-19: Focused, Remote Solutions Now and Into the Future

As the world copes with the effects of COVID-19, there’s another problem the trucking industry will be facing all too soon: a significant driver scarcity. While it’s certainly not news that the industry was already short by tens of thousands of drivers last year, and that the shortage is expected to more than double over the next nine years, it wasn’t something that caused immediate concern. After all, carriers had almost a decade to make those low recruiting numbers rise.

And then the pandemic hit.

Recruiting new drivers isn’t now just a matter of finding the right people; it’s also a matter of doing it safely, effectively and efficiently.

Onboarding and training those recruits – without putting anyone’s health at risk – is another issue being faced by fleets.

To help mitigate the danger, and to help keep employees and their families safe, companies have been forced to reevaluate traditional approaches to recruiting and onboarding new employees.

This is where remote onboarding and digital training comes in.

HOW MUCH ARE YOU WILLING TO RISK?

The true cost of an accident can be staggering. Besides direct costs, indirect costs like poor publicity, lost clients and lost productivity can take a toll. The average cost for a truck accident is $148,279, not including litigation. It would take an additional revenue of $7,413,950 to pay the accident costs, assuming an average profit margin of 2%. A study of over one million lines of data on truck violations discovered that over 28,000 trucking companies, representing over 200,000 trucks, operated with safety violations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association’s (FMSCA) settlement for non-compliance was $36,262,097 in 2014 with an average fine of over $7,000 per case.
