How We Protect You from Post-Pandemic Truck Driver Shortages
All Chemical hires more experienced, highly-trained truck drivers in it for the long haul
By Anthony Coruccini, Chief Operating Officer
We can all agree that the pandemic brought plenty of upheaval. Since 2019, industries of all kinds have been struggling to recover, and bulk liquid transport is no different. But although post-pandemic truck driver shortages aren’t going away anytime soon, here at All Chemical, our valued customers enjoy greater protection from those effects.
Why? Because of the high-quality CDL truck drivers we employ and how well we treat them. All Chemical has a long history of commitment to our team that is paying dividends now—and we pass along those benefits to you.
Let’s be honest: truck driver turnover was a problem in the industry even before the pandemic. But where other carriers deal with high turnover and low driver retention rates, at All Chemical, we’ve built a team of truck drivers who are in it for the long haul.
As a family-owned and operated liquid bulk transportation company, we know how to treat truck drivers as people, not robots. Owning and maintaining our fleet in-house means that our truck drivers take pride in operating our newer, well-serviced, reliable tankers. The numbers speak for themselves: While the industry average turnover rate hovers in the 80–90% range, All Chemical’s rate over the past twelve months was only around 5%. Our total value proposition—competitive pay, healthcare, and retirement benefits—leads to truck drivers as dedicated to us as we are to them. And that means stability for you, the customer.
Employing more experienced, rigorously trained truck drivers gives us a team of highly committed truck drivers who are less likely to leave. Because we ship tankers, we require skilled truck drivers with specialized knowledge who have mastered the Hazmat hauling regulations and load handling requirements the job demands. Time and again, our CDL truck drivers prove their worth as they face route and load challenges that would stump the less experienced. They run routes for consistent customers, becoming experts in the exact handling restrictions involved, and delivering increasingly exceptional results.
These are truck drivers invested in their careers, committed to maintaining safety in all facets of their day. They’re devoted to their work, and we’re devoted to them. In times of upheaval, our team stays strong. And from that position of strength, we can continue to deliver the reliable, one-stop-shop services our valued customers know to expect from the team here at All Chemical.
