Focusing on the Driver | Leah Shaver

Episode Summary

This week’s guest is Leah Shaver, President & CEO of The National Transportation Institute (NTI). With over 20 years in the trucking industry, Leah is the leading expert on driver compensation and strategies addressing driver recruiting, retention and development. Now more than ever both shippers and carriers have recognized that drivers are the most important resource in transportation. Leah explains why it is important to compensate drivers for the time required for the work, not just the loaded miles driven, how compensation has changed over time, and why spending time and money on driver retention delivers more value than focusing solely on recruiting.
