Professional Development Sessions:
Outline: “If you got it, a truck brought it”.
Industry, service, and program providers are reliant on the transportation industry. Transportation services at the time of crisis can be a competitive environment and this can be aggravated by labour shortages.
How do you select a transportation partner that manages risks and maintains the labour capacity to deliver your services?
It you have your own fleet, tips on how to survive the driver shortage.
