Truck drivers will get a better deal


The “worst driver shortage in 28 years,” is plaguing trucking companies throughout North America.

“We advertised for a week for a driver in Calgary and had three replies, none of them acceptable to us--two of the guys were over 60 and one who’s had seven jobs in five years,”says Steve Islaub, vice-president of Vedder Transport of Abbotsford, B.C., a 100-driver company that specializes in hauling edible liquids.

The shortage has been brewing on the back burner for quite a while, but now it seems to be critical. Some transportation observers are putting the blame squarely on the downloading of cost-cutting on to the shoulders of the driver. In the recent economic downturn the shipping community tended to take savings out of the trucker, observed Stan Dunford, CEO of Contrans, a truckload transportation services company with operations throughout Canada and the U.S.

Dunford anticipates that the shipping community will have to factor some serious increases into their pricing in order to hold drivers. His company is also stepping up incentives to reduce the rapid churn rate of drivers, which, in some cases exceeds 100% per year. “We’ve refurbished driver facilities at terminals , put in showers, improved lounges, provided PO boxes with keys for mail,” he told Report-ON-Business TV recently.

Amongst the factors causing drivers shortages:

  • poor pay scales and deteriorating working conditions have led to high “churn” rates
  • retirement of experienced drivers;
  • tougher safety rules reducing driver hours of service;
  • young people don’t like the lifestyle;
  • problems recruiting young persons because of insurance rates

Over the past decade or so, truck driving has become the job of last resort. The odd hours for long distance driving and the adjustments needed by families makes for a very unattractive career unless the economy is so bad that there’s nothing else available. Job-hopping for improved hours and schedules became the rule rather than the exception.

Now, the driver shortage is causing companies to offer better pay and benefits. Drivers can start at $35,000, and eventually make $70,000 to $100,000 a year with overtime. Among the perks being offered are a chance to move to local routes to be home more and $5,000 signing bonuses. One company is offering a pay feature that allows drivers to get a tax benefit by treating part of their pay as reimbursement for meals and expenses.

One controversial solution to the driver shortage is causing concern to safety advocates … a pilot plan to allow 19- and 20-year-olds to operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce. “This is simply an effort by motor carriers to find a new source of people willing to work cheap and provisions in the proposal that would hold the driver captive to the carrier until he’s 21 amounts to no more than indentured servitude,” said Jim Johnston, president of the Owner-Operators and Independent Drivers Association.

Another contentious issue is the use of electronic devices to record driver’s hours behind the wheel. This would eliminate the log-book juggling that currently enables drivers and shippers to bend hours of service rules. The technologies are being pushed by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety but meeting stiff resistance from the trucking industry.

"If you're going to have enforcement based on electronic data, it had better be a lot better working than my laptop," says Bill Goose, vice president of engineering for the American Trucking Associations trade group. "Right now, we'd prefer voluntary use of the devices."

The need work through these issues is becoming urgent now as the economy picks up. By all accounts there’s rising demand for trucking services but growth is at a virtual standstill until additional truck drivers are attracted, says one executive. End of Article

Carter,

This is just a mere reflection of the economy; trucking companies go down, which means companies aren't transporting as much materials, which means they aren't buying, which means companies aren't selling.

Gerard,

In response to your add about truck drivers shortages, if trucking company's where willing to share the profit and pay decent wages, after all who wants to live in a truck and be robbed while doing it, until company's can get a truck to drive it self down the highway, there will always be a shortage, most companies out there are parasites

Gerard,

I'm a class 1 driver and what I have seen in the past few years I can't blame people for not wanting to drive truck, company's are robbing drivers blind, long hrs with no pay, 40 to 50 cents a mile, some company's are a little better but not by much, putting up with ignorant dispatchers, truck managers. If all drivers where to stand together and stop working for parasites maybe things could change

R.D.Braun,

Until the fleet owners and government stop pandering to every citizen that says the trucking community are nothing but a bunch of dangerous man killers, nothing will ever happen to lessen the churn rate. Truckers talk, that is a fact! Another fact is that alot of the old hands have a hand in discouraging new people entering the industry because it has become nothing more than a farce. To top it off, the drivers in this industry are just plain sick and tired of having the crap roll down hill right ontop of them. The rules and regs that a driver has to follow now, not to mention the low pay for the long hours of service we have to put in just to service the public is getting quite sickening. I'm a driver of 25+ years and I left the industry that I used to love because everybody wants a piece of the pie and wants to leave the driver holding the bag. The whole damned industry has turned into one huge joke!!

My first job as a Haul trailer truck driver was at Agility Logistics Company-Kuwait , where I used to long haul transport for goods and materials from the warehouse to the US army's Hubs in Kuwait and Iraq. I worked there for seven years and later on joined KGL transport company-Kuwait as a long haul trailer driver. I can easily drive continuously for days in a row without frequent breaks. Now I am looking job in Canada truck industry.

Safety is something that is paramount to me & it is something that I take very seriously. I am a hard, reliable worker who is very passionate about obtaining employment within the transport sector. Now I am looking same job in Canada or Australia If you feel that you can help in any way, I would really appreciate it.

Awaiting a positive response.

Dwayne,

I'd like to get into driving truck - just need to get my 5th wheel endorsement added to my CDL. But I hate all the restrictions that the governnment imposes on truck drivers. I really beleiive thaht a lot of the restrictions came about due to Unions whose drivers didn't like seeing hard working drivers run circles around them, so made "safety" as a way to get uninformed officials to pass so many laws, that driving truck no longer was fun. Used to be an adventure - grew up with trucks and it is in my blood. When I see truckers, I still admire them. Anytime I break down along the road, I know who I can count on. If I lose my job, I know where I can turn to get a job. But government needs to back off some. Truckers almost always are the safest on the road because their livelihood (sp) depends on it.

mary david,

From: Mrs. Mary David

This mail may be a surprise to you because you did not give me the permission to do so and neither do you know me but before I tell you about myself I want you to please forgive me for sending this mail without your permission. I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the will of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly. I need an honest and trust worthy person like you to entrust this huge transfer project unto.

My name is Mrs. Mary David, The Branch Manager of a Financial Institution. I am a Ghanaian married with 3 kids. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit last year (i.e. 2010 financial year). I have already submitted an annual report for that year to my head office in Accra-Ghana as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess. I have since, placed this amount of US$7,500,000.00 Dollars on an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (Anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and 60% would be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response to me. This is why and only reason why I contacted you, I am willing to go into partnership investment with you owing to your wealth of experience, So please if you are interested to assist on this venture kindly contact me back for a brief discussion on how to proceed.

All correspondence must be via my private E-mail (dmary4love1@yahoo.fr) for obvious security reasons.

Best regards,
Mrs. Mary David.

I like these job because:
1.It is good paid.While i was driving in scandinavia my salary was 1200 euro for mounth
2.It is the best way to wisit other countries becayse every day you are in diferent place.
3.The truck is "house on wheels" where you do not pay rent or monthly bills
That is how I see

How & where can i get my visa forms and help in completing them.

Temporary Worker - No I-797

To obtain a visa permitting a traveler to be employed while in the U.S.:

A U.S. employer must file a petition (I-129) in the U.S. to authorize employment for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
If the petition is approved, the USCIS will forward the "Notice of Action/Approval" (Form I-797) to the employer.
The employer will then forward the Form I-797 to you.
Without an approved petition Form I-797 a visa cannot be processed.

overlander,

oh dear so many desperate truck drivers,hello all you truck drivers wanting to get out,seriousley how many trucking companys in your own countrys would hire somebody without meeting you first,erm not many,i think is the correct answer!!!
have any of you ever considered new zealand,i have been a truck driver for 18 years,and have worked in new zealand,australia and recently around africa,currently i am back in nz working as a truck driver,it is soo easy to get in!!!the best thing to do fellas is up sticks and go,no one wants to employ sombody over the internet in this line of work,get off your a***s and do something about it....this is what i do....rather than f***ing about with all these internet companys and immigration companys,go straight to the source "nz immigration service" and look up the immediate shortages list,there you will find that heavy vehicle operator class 4 and 5 is on that list(uk equivelant class 1 and 2)minimum 3 years experience)
ok first uk citizens buy an open return ticket to nz,uk citizens no visa required for 6 months,get out there and look for work as you would in the uk,when you find a job that you want,tell the employer,you need an offer of employment to apply for your visa(usually no worrie)so the employer gives you an offer of employment,you been as savvy as you are have got the forms allready from the immigration service,so you get the employer to fill out his form which is barely a page,this is the employer supplementary form,you fill out your application for a work permit form,put it together with your police clearance certificate,that you got before you arrived,your full medical which you got here,very easy to do,apply for 3 years,takes about 3 weeks,so you tell the employer that you are willing to train for free while your permit application is processed...simple..
cost-your return flight of course,work permit application 200nzd,police clearance 10 quid,medical and chest xray maximum 400 nzd...
iff you apply for less time you can avoid the medical and police clearance untill a later date..
this is my 3rd time in new zealand,it is so bloody simple...don,t waste your time looking on nz trucking sites,half don,t work,look for jobs in the local papers and trademe.co.nz the job section and also seek.co.nz this is where nz employers are advertising...also for you lucky uk class 2 holders when you transfer your license here,which is just sitting the highway code test,100 multiple choice questions and the relevant fee,pass that and for some reason they will give you an arcticulated license woohoo,i was a uk class 2 driver and i now have a practically free nz class 5 arctic license....
look it up folks you know it makes sense

steve,

I am in Vancouver BC. I have Class 5 with air and a class 3 learners. I can already up shift and down shift, and pass the road test I just need a vehicle to take it in.

sunday phienu,

Dear sir

my name is sunday phienu. i am hevy duty truck driver with 16 yeas experience.furmarly working in (NNPC) deport.i promiss u that i will give you the best.

pls getback to me so that i can give you my diltas.

thanks may God be with you.

my email;sphienu@yahoo.com

overlander,

i have been a truck driver for nearly 18 years,and use my license to see other countrys,originally from the uk,have uk experience,have worked as a truck driver in australia,new zealand and most recently africa,now i,m currently back in new zealand still working as a truck driver..

this is a problem that is hitting everywhere not just in north america,europe,new zealand,australia are all experiencing the same issues.

when are the goverments going to wake up and class this job as a skill,we spend thousands of pounds/dollars and years in training going through several licenses till you hit the top,also when are companys going to wake up,there is too many hauliers out there that pay crap wages for the job that is expected of you,sole responsibilty for hundreds and thousands of pounds/dollars worth of equipment and stock,and you guys would rather pay some muppet rock bottom wages for operating your equipment,the general attitude to drivers and again this is worldwide(they are all the same with a different accident)is that iff they don,t like it you can go somwhere else,they know that there is a high turnover of truck drivers out there,one leaves another comes in...wake up everybody!!pay the wages,give the benefits,don,t mess your drivers about i:e wait till they,re almost home till you turn them round and send them back again.......

in the meantime i would be very interested to come out and work in canada for a stint,iff it,s just as terrible as everywhere else,and it would have to be pretty terrible for me,as i know and understand the industry quite well from a drivers point of view,and have quite a good attitude to work,then i will give up trucking competely and go home to the uk.

im a truck driver in the uk, im 38 single with no ties, i love driving long haul and have been looking for work in Canada and the US, but its going to cost me way to much to get out there and to get started, if i could find a company that does long haul across the US that would be willing to pay i would be out there in a flash, i got a job offer with H&r transport running out of Alberta, but the costs to me was way to high or i would have gone soon as,

if anyone knows any companys willing to help me get out there i would be most grateful.

Christo (GUNSTON),

I am 34 and have +- 10years OTR exp and can drive a nice truck thru hell on the 4 july without a scratch.I am one of the best in South Africa but stop driving 2 years ago
Their is no career in trucking in south africa, It is unsafe and the pay is bad.
Back home the life of your wife and kids is constantly in danger because of the crime rate in south africa.If we had the money we would have immigrated long time ago.I love driving but the safety and welfare of my family is more important.
I drove an average of 25 000km a month on Bad south african roads.
USA drivers dont now how lucky they are to drive nice trucks on nice roads with nice truck stops.I know not all is just smooth sailing in transport but enought was just enought.
Their is alot of drivers on South African roads that is just not suppose to even drive a car let alone drive big rigs.
My wife can also drive trucks but was never given the opportunity to get a license or a job as a driver.
Thank you from sunny (dark) South Africa.

Red,

Trucking jobs are hard to come by now. Probably the best bet is to contact individual companies and try to get to talk to whoever is responsible for hiring.

It's hard for any company to hire from another country.

DK,

Light trucks (pickups etc.) you can drive on your German license if you are visiting. How long depends on state. To drive commercial trucks you need a Commercial Driver License. You can check requirements for these by going to
http://www.drivershandbook.com

Norbert,

I have a german trucklicence can i work as a truckdriver in usa or can you tell me what i have to do.
In witch state in the usa can i drive a truck with a german trucklicence i live in the usa

Dennis,

If there is a shortage of driver's,then why is so hard for an experienced driver,like me,to find a company that is willing to pay for experience.most companies want to pay the same as someone who has just gotten out of school.I think that's wrong,and that's why they can't find any good help.

Sven,

Hey Robson,
I´m pretty sorry for you, but normally the insurance of the factory train owner will have to pay your truck if it is definitly unrepairable! Or your the poor, who was kidded by a badass! Didn´t they called the police?
When I read things like this, I´m ashamed being a german.
I wish you good luck!!!

Denny,

Robson, from what you say you should have no problem getting your truck replaced. What did the German factory owners say? Your case looks clear cut unless you were parked on an active track.

alan robson,

i was a uk owner driver until a german factory train ran into me, by the way i was stationary, parked where i was told to park.
the germans did not even ask how i was,never worked since, now disabled,
i am still asking the german factory for a new truck. after all they wrecked mine,

william Mcgee,

I remember a bad accident involving a 18 year old driver of a tractor trailer from Canada. He improperly loaded a escavator, hit a skywalk for pedistrians which cause it to collaspe on the highway killing serial people. hiring young drivers with no common sense has a severe cost to human life down here in Baltimore, Maryland it happened 1997 on interstate 695.

Ralph Williams,

Left trucking a year ago,why,because of low pay. I was running local Balto to Pa two trips daily needed to make as least a thousand a week company unwilling to meet that price. I love trucking but my family can't afford me to.And by the way I have six years exp. flatbed, vans and reefers.
