If you’re looking for smiling drivers, it’s probably not a good idea to cruise around the Dan Ryan or Kennedy Expressway in the Chicago, IL area during rush hour on most weekdays.
That goes double for truck drivers who have a lot of traffic headaches to deal with as they try to deliver in the area.
It’s not all doom and gloom for truck driving, however, as female operators apparently might have a sunnier outlook. In a recent survey featuring driver feedback, women drivers ranked higher than their male counterparts in critical areas like driver job satisfaction and their willingness to stay with a particular carrier.
That’s good news for Bay & Bay Transportation company and its many customers in the Chicago area. The trucking industry in general has been talking up the need to recruit and retain more women as a solution to the driver shortage, which consistently ranks as a top trucking company concern. Driver retention is another issue that’s near the top of that list as well.
Of course, some industry watchers would argue there’s no shortage of drivers; there’s actually a shortage of people willing to work for the pay that’s currently being offered. Whether that’s true or not, the survey suggests that women in driving jobs tend to be more satisfied with their carriers like Bay & Bay when it comes to pay and time away from the wheel.
The survey findings are sure to be another factor in hiring decisions at Bay & Bay and other trucking companies.
