Attracting and Retaining the Next Generation of Truck Drivers

According to the American Trucking Associations, there was a shortage of truck drivers last year that surpassed 60,000. That number is expected to grow to 160,000 by 2028. With the average age of a commercial truck driver at 55-years-old and with more baby boomers retiring from the trucking industry every year, it’s so important to retain the drivers you already have and attract younger drivers to your company. 

At Veltri, Inc., we pride ourselves in driver retention. The average driver has been with us for at least six years. Our employees must have at least two years of previous driving experience and clean driving records. Our compensation and benefit package is well above average and our drivers receive a strong hourly rate, as well as a 401K and quality health care plan.

Safety and Reliability

High safety standards are essential in day-to-day operations. Veltri, Inc. has a team of employees that meet on a regular basis to discuss safety measures and to ensure all freight is secure. Our drivers are accustomed to adhering to time sensitive conditions and the importance of staying on schedule, and delivering on time.

Time With Family

Trying to balance a professional and personal life can be challenging. For drivers with families, a regular schedule is often more important than making a large salary. Since Veltri, Inc. is a local and regional company, we are proud of the fact that our drivers are home at the end of their shift. We can accommodate all shifts as we are 24/7 operations. 

Family-owned and operated for more than 40 years, Veltri, Inc. provides regional trucking services in southeastern Pennsylvania, central and southern New Jersey and Delaware. Our mission is to provide superior service to our customers and a safe, fulfilling work environment for our employees while adhering to the highest safety standards in the industry.
