The truck driver shortage crisis



Truckers are the backbone of the transportation industry. Their shortage might be ruinous for the entire supply chain. The main issue is the driver shortage crisis, whereas the trucker shortage crisis is only a symptom. The true causes are a complex set of factors, where management and technology play a leading role.

  • The logistics manager who has to assure last-mile delivery.
  • The supply chain manager who has to take a strategic outlook on transportation availability.
  • The Chief of Human Resources who has to rethink the hiring policy for drivers.
  • The managing partner in a consulting firm who advises her client on their supply chain.
  • The SME owner who has to investigate the availability of transportation.

As you can see, you're not asking your respondents for opinions, satisfaction or agreement. Our scientific research has shown that these are very bad fuel for algorithms. Instead, we ask for verifiable facts or -behaviour. For further reading, you can download our AMAIZE magazine dedicated to this topic or discover the scientific papers in the Resources section.

After you have downloaded this questionnaire, you can - in your Toolbox - edit, add/delete, and translate questions & answers to your liking. Clicking the "Help me PRAIORITIZE" buttons in the Toolbox activates our A.I. to help you finish your masterpiece..

Q. How are driver vacancies filled?
  1. Barely (if at all)
  2. We sometimes have to fill a driver shortage with drivers from another carrier
  3. We actively work on filling driver vacancies with drivers from our own driver pool

Q. Are there enough drivers available to run all the freight you would like to run?
  1. No; there is a shortage of drivers (in total)
  2. There is a shortage of drivers in certain categories
  3. There are enough drivers in all categories
The artificial intelligence creating the questionnaires for the store has been inspired by over 11.000 whitepapers from more than 100 noted consultancy firms. Algorithms selected the 20% best papers and grouped papers from different consultancy firms into specific questionnaires. Why settle for less? Here is a summary how we did it.

If you feel you need outside support after conducting your assessment, we recommend the firms that have written the below mentioned whitepapers. Not having a paper selected does NOT mean that a firm does not give good advice.
You will download so much more than a set of questions and answers. This questionnaire contains everything for the full consultancy experience:
  • Respondent profiles for a helicopter view of your audience.
  • A maturity model with which algorithms calculate a six times smarter improvement target (compared to when you leave that to a human).
  • Improvement suggestions (per question) how to move from one answer to another
  • Suggested follow-on projects. After all, moving your organization from A to B might require more than just doing an assessment.
This English questionnaire is also available in Dutch, French, German, and Spanish.
