The current state of driver recruitment on both sides of the market is frustrating. There are roughly 700,000 motor carrier companies in the US and more than 3.5 million CDL drivers and any given moment. Every month there are roughly 300,000 CDL jobs open. Carriers and drivers alike are spending countless hours on various job boards and social media channels, making it very hard to connect a specific job the carrier is hiring for with a driver who meets the qualifications and is looking for that role.
According to our recent driver insights research, more than half of drivers are upset with the state of the job search process. They don't know where to look for a job that meets their criteria, and are often left overwhelmed with long or confusing applications. The number one pain point that drivers communicate with us is that they're looking at false job ads and they're tired of recruiters who are overpromising and under delivering.
It's not so different on the carrier side of the market. Our carrier customers are also frustrated and often complain that having too many sources to post jobs ends up wasting time and money. Managing a marketing budget across several platforms is difficult, especially when the quality of applicants is not always reliable.
