July 18, 2018 - Entry Level Driver Training and Onboarding - 10 AM CST

A driver’s basic job is to get from origin to destination without loss, damage, or delay. This means knowing where you are going, counting and securing your cargo (or actually loading it in certain situations), inspecting your vehicle when required to make sure it keeps running and is safe, driving safely, complying with the applicable regulations, and delivering your cargo on time and in good condition, and completing the necessary paperwork along the way. To be able to accomplish all of these tasks safely and efficiently, drivers must be trained by their carriers. How and when you conduct that training is up to you. In this webcast, we will look at what a driver training program should include, how the training should be delivered, and establishing a training schedule.

In this webcast, we will discuss how to develop and implement an effective driver scorecard and how to avoid pitfalls that can create problems with the scorecarding.
