A trucking company with more than 40 years in operation believes that they have cracked the code to success by fostering a pro-driver company culture which has, in turn, led to high levels of driver retention and customer satisfaction.

Afton, Minnesota-based trucking company Driver Driven Transportation is on a mission to provide best-in-class customer experience to clients in all 48 states. And company leaders have learned through decades of experience that the best way to do this is to provide drivers with high levels of clear communication, support, and respect to make sure that they can get their jobs done with maximum efficiency and safety.

Because of their relentless focus on creating a positive and healthy driver experience, Driver Driven boasts a greater than 80% driver retention rate, and there are several drivers on staff who have been with the company for decades.
