How To Hire Truck Drivers

Did you know there’s a shortage of 89,000 truck drivers in the United States? Did you know that the gap will likely grow to almost 900,000 by the end of 2025? In addition to the shortage itself, many recruiters struggle to find and hire qualified truck drivers. Most qualified truck drivers are already gainfully employed and on the road, sometimes for long periods of time.

Truck drivers simply don’t read newspapers anymore, nor do they check help-wanted ads. Therefore, in order to connect with qualified candidates, you need help. You need a company which gets your message out directly to qualified candidates through focused social media marketing channels.
