For Immediate Release

Truckers association responds to White House trucking action plan announced today

This is a statement from our Association in response to the Administration’s announcement today on solutions to trucking problems. Below that is a video statement from our president, Todd Spencer, said as he prepares to join the White House Trucking Roundtable today:

There are some elements in the plan we support, including further analysis of driver compensation and unpaid detention time. However, the plan fails to address excessively high driver turnover rates. Attracting and training new drivers won’t solve the larger problem of retention. We need to create an environment where truckers can have long, safe and productive careers.
