Talent Shortages Drive Industry-Specific Transport Recruitment Solutions

The American Trucking Association (ATA) estimates a current shortage of more than 30,000 drivers and expects that number to reach 175,000 by 2024 if current trends hold. These mushrooming driver shortages combined with impending attrition due to retirement and increasing freight volumes will create an industry need for 89,000 new drivers every year.

Added to that shortage is the need for innovative leaders and industry professionals who can address the challenges of acquisitions and consolidations, retirement, overregulation, geopolitical unrest, technological advances, volatile exchange rates, and changing stakeholder expectations.

At Hire Velocity, we help clients meet critical talent needs by seeking out strong leaders with the skills and experience needed to solve problems and lead organizations forward. We leverage both our knowledge of the transportation and logistics industry and our decades of recruiting experience to develop a reliable talent pipeline and strengthen both internal and external hiring processes.

Nearly half of CEOs in the transportation and logistics industry plan to reassess their approach to branding, marketing, communications, and risk management according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. Organizational leaders will need to address customer expectations for deeper online and mobile solutions along with revitalized customer experiences.

We help you meet these evolving customer and employee expectations with innovative hiring solutions, strategic assessments, and holistic implementations that will address your talent challenges both now and in the future.
