The Aging Driver Population and Shortage:
How to Bring in New, Less Experienced Drivers Safely!
This session will focus on how fleets can develop a strategy to combat the aging driver population and ever-lasting shortage. We will have an open and interactive discussion that circles around how fleets can bring on new, less experienced drivers safely and with the approval of their insurance carriers. The session is a continuation of our Commercial Trucking Town Hall series last year where we identified, over the course of 7 Town Halls, that much of the driver shortage has to do with restrictions developed by the Commercial Truck Insurance Industry. The issue more specifically, how do Trucking Companies bring in new drivers that have less experience than their insurance carrier requires. Our panel will offer potential solutions and encourage discussion in the following areas:
Incorporating Truck Driving Schools
Tips to approach Insurance Carriers
