Transportation costs are increasing because of the lack of qualified truckers. How can small regulatory changes increase the number of truckers and, at the same time, make the roads safer for everyone?
Learning Objectives (Key Takeaways):
During this webinar you will learn about a bipartisan effort that has reintroduced legislation in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives that would allow drivers as young as 18 years old to drive heavy- duty trucks in interstate commerce. If passed, the DRIVE-Safe Act would establish an apprenticeship program for CDL holders under the age of 21. This program would provide the necessary training and institute rigorous safety standards and with performance benchmarks.
You will also learn about federal preemptions of state regulations that are making it harder to deliver goods, and how the gig economy (short-term contracts or freelance work) is moving into trucking to make shipping more efficient.
Intended Audience: Distributors who rely on trucking to deliver goods both to their warehouse and the last mile.
