High-tech driver recruiting, part I: speed dating

Remember when drivers used to stream into your office or congest your 1-800 number to apply for jobs? Recruiting was never that easy, but it might seem so when compared to the present situation. The future doesn’t look any better.

The trucking industry could immediately fill 30,000 driving positions. Carriers also will need to fill 100,000 positions every year for the next decade to keep up with freight volumes and to replace drivers leaving the workforce, estimates the American Trucking Associations.

The severity of the driver shortage is compounded by the fact that only a small fraction of job applicants are qualified. To compete for this small pool, a growing number of fleets are using technology to streamline their recruiting and hiring process.

Navajo Express To Participate in the 2015 CVSA 72 Hour International Roadcheck Event

Monday, May 4, 2015

Starting June 2nd through the 4th, Navajo Express will be participating in the 2015 Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 28th annual international roadcheck event. During this time, CVSA-certified officials and federal inspectors will be conducting inspections with added emphasis placed on the “Top 9 Areas” for compliance and safety. These areas include: brakes; coupling devices; fuel and exhaust systems; frame, fan and open-top trailers; lighting; steering; suspension; tires, wheels, rims, and hubs; and securement of cargo.

“This event ties into everything we are doing at Navajo to keep safety our priority. Using the tools and training that the CVSA has made available to our drivers, we will use this opportunity to reinforce safe loading techniques, and performing proper vehicle maintenance inspections,” said Allen Lowry, SVP of Safety at Navajo Express. “By doing so, we not only keep our drivers and the public safe, but it helps us to identify maintenance issues with our vehicles and keep our customers’ freight moving.”

According to the CVSA, the average cost before fines or repairs for failing an inspection is $861 for each truck put out of service.  Last year, 18.7 percent of vehicles were put out-of-service during the inspection, which saw more than 72,000 vehicles inspected.
