driver FTEs are required to operate trucks, days per week, running X -hour shifts per truck. Fully loaded driver wages would be roughly $0 per year.
Given the cyclical nature of trucking, only about 80% of these drivers are needed year round, which means that the remaining are actually seasonal workers.
By outsourcing this extra seasonal volume to SlipSeat, you can realize substantial savings simply because you only pay for the drivers you need.
Think of it this way...instead of sending 20% of your driver force home when there is no work, you hire these drivers as independent contractors when you need the extra help.
At SlipSeat, our goal is to provide a win/win for everyone.
* Drivers make more money and have freedom - win
* Companies deliver more loads while saving a truckload - win
