Addressing Labor Shortages in Warehouse and DC Operations
NC State SCRC
MARCH 4, 2019
A group of executive joined SCRC faculty and staff for a one-day workshop held on February 28, 2019. The American Trucking Association expect a shortage of roughly 70,000 truck drivers in 2019, which will increase to 175,000 by 2026. A number of other comments by executives at our workshop emphasized how these problems are impacting operations. We will have a number of follow-up blogs and discussions of what we learned from this workshop.
