Logistics + Transportation

Accelerate recruiting and retention of drivers with smarter, more valuable compensation.

The challenge

There is a severe shortage of resilient workers

According to a study conducted by the American Trucking Associations (ATA) in 2021, the trucking industry faced a shortage of approximately 80,000 drivers, and this number is expected to increase in the coming years.

Attrition is a major issue in logistics. Many of the roles don’t require a lot of previous experience, you can get trained and be ready to start work in 24 hours. So, there’s no blocker for people to change jobs. And right now, there are so many jobs out there.”

- Jenny Heflik, Vice President of Global Accounts for Logistics at the Adecco Group


Worker Shortage

29% of workers in this sector want to quit their job in the next 12 months.

Of those, 51% say it’s to have a better salary, 25% say it’s to gain flexibility.


High Turnover

Demanding work conditions and long hours lead to high turnover for this sector.

The annualized turnover rate for truck drivers was 92% in 2020 (Stay Metrics). 



Compensation packages that align with employee expectations while considering organizational constraints can be complex.

And 63% of workers in this sector worry that salary is not high enough to deal with current rates of inflation.

Traditional retention-based compensation creates administrative headaches and unnecessary expense



Clawbacks are expensive to enforce and many end up unenforceable.

Tax Complexities

Paying taxes up front leads to countless hours wasted on preventable W2 corrections.

Manual Tracking

Many track sign-on and retention bonuses manually, making automation and scalable edits difficult.

There are 10.9 million logistics + transportation job openings and only 6.9 million available workers.
