End: 3:20 pm

The trucking industry skills shortage has become a crisis – as the global pandemic increases the pressures on skills gaps that were already undermining our supply chains. In this session with industry skills leaders, the focus will be on short- and long-term solutions. Truck driver apprenticeships, training of existing license holders to create a truckie reserve army solution and cutting red-tape visa requirements for refugees are all solutions to help plug the skills gaps across the industry.
