Improving driver retention has been a focal point of the U.S. Department of Transportation in recent years. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, in particular, has spent a lot of time stressing the importance of the issue. “We lose about 300,000 truck drivers a year,” Buttigieg said during a Senate committee hearing earlier this month. “We have to look at everything from working conditions to compensation … The sooner we can address those, the sooner we can not only bring people into the career but have people stay and thrive in that vitally important part of our supply chain.”
