Topic:  Operations, Human Resources, Recruitment and Retention
Level:  All
Type:  Webinar


The US economy started the year with its worst performance in two years, according to Commerce Department figures. How will fluctuations in GDP, crude oil and fuel prices, and other indicators affect truckload carriers, and what should you be doing to prepare for and prosper in the current economic market? During this informative webinar, you will understand the risks and opportunities carriers may face in the coming year. We will discuss the regulatory environment and its possible impact on the driver market, and examine how economic factors will influence your workforce.  

We'll explore what the future of trucking looks like as cutting-edge technologies, such as driverless trucks, drones and 3-D printing, are developed and implemented, and how they could impact the way carriers do business. You will get an informed perspective on what to expect, and practical tips for positioning your company in the months ahead. 

Topics will include:

  • The impact of the economy on driver recruitment and retention
  • The effects of the unemployment rate on trucking jobs
  • Why and how you could see increased freight volumes during slow economic growth
  • The impact of the economy and regulations on carriers' relationships with shippers
