where have all the drivers gone

Where have all the drivers gone?

Driver shortage remains key issue for most carriers

Prevents business growth

Results in higher expenses for recruiting and retention (80% to 120% turnover rate)

Aging driver force means many will retire and the industry is not attracting younger drivers

Background

  • 2002: Jim Pattison Group Started ProLogix Distribution Services and AccuLogix Distribution Services in Canada.
  • 2006: The News Group and Anderson News formed a strategic alliance under ProLogix East and ProLogix West.

Functions include: warehousing, order assembly, returns processing, merchandising and delivery to retail customers

Goal: Streamline deliveries and reduce overhead costs

Pros

  • Standardization of receiving hours for both TNG and ANCO:
    • Thurs 4am, Pre-weekend delivery.
  • ProLogix allowed the break-up agents nighttime access via lock box/key for drop-ship locations.
    • ProLogix East is shifting to separate driver and merchandiser as was done from the outset in ProLogix West.
    • Net impact positive or negative?

Cons

  • OS&D issues
  • Publishers incurred Incremental transportation costs
  • Poor Communication - Prologix East had too many address changes in the beginning...communication was better with Prologix West (example, News Group Receiving Policy)
  • Routing and merchandiser turnover
  • Shifts in delivery patterns have led to a loss in copies delivered pre-weekend as well as a shift in copies from Thursday to Friday delivery.
    • Total net impact on sale unknown at this point, but will likely be significant
    • Continuing to work through these issues with Pre-Weekend delivery to retail
  • Bottom line – “the jury is still out”
