TransX turnover rate earns retention award

TORONTO, Ont. — The 2006 OTR/SelecTrucks of Canada Canadian Retention Award was presented to the TransX Group of Companies in the Over 100 Power Units Category.

The award recognizes carriers who demonstrate the best overall lowest driver turnover rate, the most improved driver turnover rate, and the best effort to improve driver retention over a number of years.

An independent panel of industry experts judged submissions and this year’s award was presented to Dave Waver, director of safety and recruiting, and Mike Berlett, director of operations of the TransX Group at the Fourth Annual Canadian Recruiting and Retention Conference.

“This year’s winners continue in the tradition of raising the bar by demonstrating exceptional dedication to reducing their company’s annual turnover,” commented Nevio Turchet of SelecTrucks of Canada.

The TransX Group of Companies operates with 1,500 drivers, 1,100 power units and eight terminals across North America and runs an average of 130 million miles per year.

“Another great initiative is their mentoring program which coaches new drivers and they feature a Diamond Driver Program, which recognizes and rewards the efforts of drivers who continuously display an exceptional level of professionalism and excellence,” added Turchet, while presenting the award.
