July 21st Webinar: “Economic Outlook: A Guide for Driver Engagement, Workforce Development and Business Opportunities”

On July 21, 2016, the Truckload Carriers Association is presenting a webinar: “Economic Outlook: A Guide for Driver Engagement, Workforce Development and Business Opportunities.” We invite anyone interested in this topic to view the webinar.

“For every mile-per-hour drop in speed, America needs an additional 67,000 drivers just to move the same amount of freight,” says FTR Chairman and CEO Eric Starks.  “This is a startling fact given that regulations will constrain driver availability over the next few years,” he continues.

Discover how driver recruitment and retention could be impacted by federal regulations, economic conditions and the lack of a well-maintained highway infrastructure during the Truckload Academy webinar, The Economic Outlook: A Guide for Driver Engagement, Workforce Development and Business Opportunities, Thursday, July 21, 12-1:30 p.m. ET.  Starks will explore these issues as well as the impact of technologies on the trucking industry and share what carriers should plan for in the months ahead.
