Solving the Driver Crisis - an FTA Summit
March 12th 2015, Ricoh Arena, Coventry
The driver shortage may be for life, not just for Christmas...
The logistics industry has yet again delivered a fantastic Christmas but this year not without its biggest challenge – of having enough drivers. The shortage of qualified and experienced HGV drivers is now a chronic problem for road freight operators and the problems experienced in the run-up to this Christmas will persist into 2015 and beyond.
This is not just a haulage sector problem but is also affecting operators across British commerce. We are simply failing to attract sufficient numbers of people into the industry and time is running out to turn this around. Whilst the Government can help with the problem, ultimately the industry itself will have to solve it.
We need to stop complaining and start campaigning...
Join up to 500 fellow operators at a unique free FTA Summit at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Thursday 12 March 2015 to review the current position, discuss what can be done and learn from experiences and best practice across the industry and around the world.
The outline programme for the day will include the following sessions:
Learn from other sectors on successful strategies for recruiting and retraining qualified staff as well as hear from Government policy makers, industry experts, leading operators and drivers at this unique industry event aimed at Solving the Driver Crisis.
You don't need to be an FTA member to attend and attendance is free of charge for the first 500 applicants.
