BOLTON, Ont. – Titanium Transportation Group Inc. has revealed that as at December 31, 2018, it saw its driver base increase by 14 per cent. It also posted a driver turnover rate of 18.6 per cent, putting it among the best in class in the industry.

By comparison, the latest data from the American Trucking Associations put the driver turnover rate for truckload carriers at over 90 per cent. Titanium achieved this strong growth and low turnover by focusing on hiring quality drivers, establishing a culture of safety and offering attractive retention and recognition programs, – including a share purchase plan – to ensure job satisfaction.

Titanium has continued to successfully recruit drivers at a consistent rate into 2019.

“We are extremely proud of our reliable, safe and hardworking driver group,” said Ted Daniel, Titanium’s CEO.

“While the industry continues to experience high turnover, Titanium continues to attract and retain the best drivers in the industry. We have maintained our leadership position with attractive pay packages and a one of a kind share purchase plan to ensure the highest level of job satisfaction because we understand drivers have to make a choice.”

Daniel noted that being an employer of choice for drivers helps the company provide better customer service, which in turn sets the company up for  growth.

Titanium serves Canada and the United States with approximately 475 power units, 1,400 trailers and 600 employees and independent owner operators. It provides truckload, dedicated, and cross-border trucking services, freight logistics, and warehousing and distribution to over 1,000 customers. The company has completed ten asset-based trucking acquisitions since 2011.
