The article reports that according to the American Trucking Associations (ATA), the linehaul driver turnover rate for large for-hire truckload carriers decreased during the second quarter of 2007. The rate was at 116 percent compared to 127 percent in the first quarter of the year. Large truckload and less-than-truckload fleets reduced total employment in the second quarter of 2007 due to the softening of the freight industry and carriers correcting the size of their operations.
