Driver shortage: Now is time to take action
May 1, 2004 12:00 PM
I have been in the tank truck business since 1975, and you are right on in your assessment (MBT April 2004 editorial, page 6: “Driver shortage means opportunity”). We must, as an industry, push this issue while the shortage is acute. The shippers have heard this story for years, but we have not acted. Now is the time.

PS — The Hispanic group is the fastest-growing segment in the United States. I believe that education and training and willingness to invest in this group is the key.
