Why We Don't Play the "Cents per Mile" Game November 1 2018

Post by: K&J Trucking

In an industry with extremely high turnover, we're proud of our driver retention rates. 

Over the last 20 years, we have consistently seen between 15.5 and 17.5 percent turnover, an incredibly low rate in this business. 

There are plenty of reasons behind our positive numbers, but there's one factor, in particular, that we believe contributes greatly to our success.

We refuse to play the "cents per mIle" game.

Post by: Brian Stern

Post by: K&J Trucking
