NCLTL Fall Meeting Results

I

The Fall Meeting was held Thursday, November 6, 2015 at the North Carolina Center for Global Logistics Conference Center at GTTC's Donald W. Cameron Campus in Colfax, NC.

A transportation panel was formed to discuss one of the most important topics facing the transportation industry today and into the future, driver shortage. Some great questions were asked and discussions were held about how carriers are keeping and recruiting over-the-road drivers. Most carriers have an average turnover rate of 40 to 45% and the average age of drivers is 52 - 54. We discussed that the transportation industry needs 96,000 new drivers just to keep pace with demand and this number could go as high as 240,000 by the year 2022.

The panel members were:
 
  • Dennis Dellinger - President, Cargo Transporters 
  • Karl Robinson - President, R&R Transportation
  • Scott Hoffmann - General Manager, CH Robinson
  • Britt Colley - President - Epes Transport System, Inc.
  • Kevin Atenhan - VP Sales, P&S Transportation
  • Ellis Brotherton, President at Tradewinds International Consulting was the Moderator for the panel.

Dave Danner Chairman of the scholarship committee awarded two $1,500.00 transportation scholarships. The students were Theodore Stevens, who is attending North Carolina A&T State University and Dennis Studer, who is attending Forsyth Technical Community College.

There were 101 people in attendance.

I would like to thank Charles Edwards, Executive Director of the North Carolina Center for Global Logistics for allowing the League to have the Fall meeting at their Conference Center.
