Consolidation, Competition Drive Change

FMI’s Transportation and Fleet Maintenance Report finds cost control a primary issue.


Fleet workforces are changing as well, driving up labor costs. Most fleet driving teams are made up of full-time, union employees who work approximately 47 hours per week with an average hourly wage of $16.35 and benefits of 40 percent. Less than 7 percent of drivers are leased from an agency, while more than 32 percent of fleets use some type of casual employees. The average fleet has 91 drivers with a small management team and support staff.
