Last Mile Delivery: Recruiting Drivers

Last Mile Delivery: Recruiting Drivers

Recruiting qualified drivers is one of the most difficult problems facing transportation companies in today’s market. Last mile labor is the final piece to a firm’s supply chain operations. It’s also one of the most expensive components and offers the greatest opportunity to impact your customers’ experience. With low unemployment and more driving opportunities than ever, companies are struggling to source drivers to execute last mile deliveries.

Even if you manage to find drivers, how do you set yourself up for operational success? Key performance indicators (KPIs) measure your team’s progress on select pieces of the last mile delivery. What about the other metrics? Driver earnings and overall satisfaction are often overlooked. Balancing driver productivity with average quote time and on-time percentage is critical for a successful last mile program.
