Leave the trucks running or get APUs. Sick of waking up every 3 hours to recharge the batteries 5 minutes at a time just to have heat when its below freezing outside. Or sweating when the humidity is 85%+

(Trucks have automatic shutoff between
28-65° F.)

As a driver with dispatching experience, I would increase driver pay. Have more 1 on 1 with driver communication, you have to remember that they aren the ones, that make it happen. I would also maintain great customer service, keeping both happy makes things much easier to achieve perfection.

Continue focusing on better ways to retain drivers but also make the office staff feel valued for their hard work and dedication day in and day out no matter how bad the working conditions get. Compensate employees based on their actual abilities and not what they say they can do or what their resume lists as their skills. Retaining drivers is important but take care of your office staff and how they are compensated and they will be more than happy to keep the drivers motivated and build a successful team.
