Tackling the issue of the need for truck drivers in the region

DOTHAN, Al. (WTVY) Truck driving is a large business in the Wiregrass, and drivers are always needed. Today, various companies met at Wallace Community College to figure out how to tackle the shortage issue. Today's meeting was designed to help companies in the trucking, transportation, logistics, and warehousing industries attract, not just employees, but younger employees. Many in the forum say there's a shortage of quality drivers and that drivers don't get quality training needed to be ready to hit the road.
