Truck Manufacturers Use Nicer Interior to Retain Drivers
Manufacturers are adding driver-centric interior layouts, as a measure to retain drivers. Carriers used to seek vehicles, then hire drivers. But now, they are getting drivers, then finding vehicles that suit their needs. If a driver doesn’t like the vehicles they are in, they will leave that fleet. Topped with an ongoing shortage of drivers, it becomes a costly procedure that may put some carriers out of business. Companies like LT have been using feedback from their 2016 model, to shape future cabins to better suit drivers. Some changes have been made to the dash, as well as to the cup holders to create more leg space.
