TD158: How Do We Attract The Next Generation In Trucking‪?‬ Trucker Dump - A Trucking Podcast

    • Careers

Today we talk to Dave Dein, a co-founder of The Next Generation In Trucking Association, which is a non-profit organization who’s goal is to get more young people interesting in trucking and logistics careers. What they’re doing is pretty cool, so you’ll want to stick around for that.


But first we’ve got more news than you can haul without a permit, including a dangerous social media game involving truckers, changes to the Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse that could affect your livelihood, more on autonomous vehicles, a proposed electric vehicle tax, a new device that fleets could use to restrict driver’s use of cell phones, and of course, a whole bunch about the impending vaccine mandate.


Also, money for truck parking is back on the agenda, care packages for the troops are requested, warehouses are full, the problem at the seaports, more on the lease-operator legal issue, the history of the owner-operator, and legislating bathrooms for truckers. Yes, really.


The Trucker Grub segment gets a retraction, and listener feedback features a whole mess of new Trucker Dump Slack members, gear recommendations, and me getting scolded. What’s new? LOL
