How telematics can contribute to positive driver experience

According to a survey conducted by the American Transportation Research Institute, in 2018, 3 of the top industry issues concerned driver shortage, driver retention and driver health and wellness.

While Baby boomers are massively retiring, Millenials are not joining the trucking industry work force which results in an unprecedented driver shortage. What do we know about Millenials, what are they looking for in a work place? Could telematics contribute to fostering a positive driver experience in order to overcome driver shortage and improve retention?

Topics include:
• Understanding the Millenials’s motivations – What drives them and what do they want from their employers.
• Getting inspired from other industries – Surrounded by technology, people have developed certain expectations on how devices and software should work. Could these functionalities be applied to telematics solution?
• Generating ideas from the audience – Using a live polling platform, let’s put our minds together to generate ideas on how to improve communications with drivers, automation of data entry, drivers work-life balance, driver feedback and more.
