Registration open for the CCJ Solutions Summit
New trucks are hard to find. It’s even difficult to order a trailer right now, let alone have one built.
But if you don’t have – or can’t keep – drivers, none of that really matters because no other employee impacts the bottom line more than the driver.
CCJThe next Solutions Summit, “Changing the Driver’s Paradigm: Winning with Gear, Technology and Culture,” will be held in Scottsdale, Ariz. From November 30 to December 2 at the Wild Horse Pass Resort, and will aim to arm fleets with a recruiting and retention manual compiled by some of the trucking industry’s foremost experts.
