Since the Hours of Service rule was reformed and went into effect in July 2013, many have pointed to a possible driver shortage issue as a result. Recently, The Global Supply Chain Institute of University of Tennessee's College of Business Administration conducted research regarding the rule change. While the rule change will positively impact highway and driver safety, UT's research also showed that carriers would need more drivers to accomplish the same amount of work. They concluded that carriers would experience both a driver shortage and an increase in turnover.
Enter Stay Metrics. Stay Metrics leverages the experience of forward-thinking individuals from the trucking industry and partners with the research capabilities of the University of Notre Dame.
Stay Metrics' "Drive For Gold" rewards program is intended to reward the driver for doing the right things while obtaining actionable information for the carrier. One of the most important pieces of information created by Stay Metrics is it's predictive modeling. It gives the carrier clear information that allows you to preempt negative issues before they arise and to promote longevity behind the wheel.
Currently, almost 90% of carriers experience an increase in driver retention within the first three months with the program. The majority also continually see improvement after a full year.
