Fred was recently recognized by Heavy Duty Trucking as one of this year’s Fleet Innovators. This a great quote about Fred from the article that is included below “he looks for solutions that are a “trifecta,” or a “win all the way around” from a safety perspective, from a driver comfort perspective, and an economic, or fuel consumption, perspective.”
One of the biggest benefits of being a driver for Hirschbach is that you have options. Like the thought of hitting the road by yourself? Be a solo driver.
Or have you never considered being a driver because it seems lonely? Have a spouse or friend you wish you could spend more time with? You can be a team driver.
Team driving is when two truck drivers make runs together on the same carrier. This allows for the haul to always keep moving because when one driver takes a break, the other takes over.
Here are 5 reasons to be a team driver for Hirschbach:
It’s no secret that employee retention is at the forefront of many businesses. Hirschbach doesn’t just talk the talk of employee appreciation, but it walks the walk. The company is committing $30 million for its new retention program to be rolled out over the next two years. In addition, Hirschbach is launching a gain-sharing program company wide.
Everyone in the trucking industry knows that drivers is a hot topic. Every company needs more and offers are abundant. Hirshcbach has not changed much in recent years in the type of positions offered. There are lease operators, owner operators and company drivers for OTR and dedicated/regional solo and teams, or local company drivers through Spot by Hirschbach. While that is pretty standard industry wide, there has not been a position for part time operators.
