IMC Addresses Driver Shortage with Historical Pay Raise
“The ATA notes that more than 70% of goods consumed in our country are moved by truck, so investing in drivers literally keeps America moving,” said Mark H. George, Chairman of IMC Companies. “Our effort to increase driver pay ensures that we will continue to be able to provide the superior service on which our customers depend.”
The average age of a commercial truck driver is 55 years old and only 6% of truck drivers are female, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
“Proactive efforts like ours, paired with an emphasis on quality equipment and efficiency at the rails, ports and customer sites, will help us to work together through the driver shortage,” says George. “Our goal is to retain seasoned drivers while attracting new talent to our growing industry.”
