Short Mixer Drivers? Industry Survey Shows Retention Issues are the Challenge, Not Hiring

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In a total U.S. pool of approximately 77,000 mixer drivers, in 2018 approximately 25,000 left (quit as well as released). Of that, 15,000 drivers had more than one year’s experience. Five years of survey results show a pattern of more experienced drivers leaving than new hires. This data is of critical importance to help producers assess their next steps to maintain a viable delivery team. The 2019 Mixer Driver Recruitment & Retention Survey report is available to NRMCA members. As you look toward 2020, include a staff business analysis about the state of your team. Still hesitant? Sixty percent of producers also report they lost orders because they did not have drivers to deliver them. Time is of essence to address the challenge.
