What Drivers Were Saying in the First Half of 2020

Earlier this year, we took a deep dive into all the feedback received through WorkHound in 2019.

Examining Driver Feedback Trends: A Look at Equipment

Earlier this year, we unveiled a report about driver feedback trends from professional drivers across the board during 2019. It provided an insightful look at what drivers need and want.

The reason it feels pertinent right now is that even as feedback has evolved and taken new shapes during the pandemic, logistics has remained a topic of concern for drivers across the board. What…
