72 HDT • OCTOBER 2014 www.truckinginfo.com D river turnover among large truckload fleets averaged 92% in the first quarter this year, accord- ing to the American Trucking Associations, and 78% for small carriers. Industry experts say turnover is even up in trucking segments known for their retention, such as private fleets and less-than-truckload. What those numbers mean is that carriers of all sizes and types spend a lot of time and money recruiting, quali- fying and hiring drivers — a process that could drown a company in paperwork. For- tunately, automated systems can reduce or even eliminate the paperwork burden, streamline the process for both the carrier and driver applicants and in some cases, result in a better pool of potential hires. A number of vendors offer products specifically de- signed to automate the recruitment process. HireRight, for instance, offers on-demand employment background checks, drug and health screening and other qualification services. The company's background screening applica- tion can be integrated with a company's existing applicant tracking system.
