Tackling the Trucking Talent Gap at Full Speed
December 1, 2021
The nationwide truck driver shortage has ballooned to more than 80,000 and is predicted to continue to grow unless we can train more drivers. Food, fuel, clothing, and most every other product is put on a truck at some point, so this talent crisis impacts every industry, business, community, and consumer. An innovative partnership between the Florida Trucking Association and FleetForce, a Florida-based independent training provider, aims to close this gap in Florida, starting with free employer-sponsored training and a job placement guarantee for qualified jobseekers looking for an in-demand career pathway who otherwise may not be able to afford to get started.
