    Trucking IV: Developing the Logistics Workforce

    Labor shortages extending well beyond the truck cab and maintenance shop make it more difficult for shippers and their trucking partners to move freight. Many companies have focused on “poaching” critical employees from competitors, be they truck drivers or logistics managers, but as enterprises struggle to find talent, the emphasis is shifting to building a workforce from the ground up. This session will look at how this strategy can be implemented across supply chains to help businesses keep and grow talent.
