What may be the best trucking company in Nebraska to work for in your opinion, may not be the same carrier another driver wants to work for.
We have met with and spoken to thousands of truck drivers in Nebraska and throughout our hiring areas.
We listened carefully and took serious note of the satisfied truck drivers who stayed with Chief Carriers long term and we learned what separated the great carriers from the rest.

Company Turnover Rate
Sadly, the typical trucking company in Nebraska and throughout America has a turnover rate of about 90%.
This means that for every ten truck drivers a trucking company hires, nine of them will leave within the first year.
Some companies have an even higher turnover rate.
A trucking company’s driver turnover rate is important to truck drivers because it indicates how well the company treats its drivers.
The lower the turnover rate, the better.
A trucking company with a low driver turnover rate is a good trucking company to work for because it means that drivers are happy with the carrier.
Chief Carriers is a flatbed carrier in Nebraska and has one of the lowest driver turnover rates in the trucking industry.
We attribute this to our commitment to our drivers. At Chief Carriers our retention rate is 39% which is more than double the industry average.
