Driver shortage: Global problem, North American solutions?

online | IRU event

Hosted by IRU in cooperation with ATA, CANACAR and CTA

This IRU North American Transportation Forum event focuses on IRU's recently published annual global driver shortage survey.

Chronic shortages are getting worse, harming carriers who struggle to find drivers to meet demand and seriously disrupting supply chains across North America and the globe.

IRU’s North American Transportation Forum members ATA, CANACAR and CTA have long worked on these issues. 

Join us to explore the latest North American solutions to this global problem, with: 

  • A briefing on the latest data and trends from IRU’s global market intelligence team  
  • A debate on the best options for North American governments, associations and carriers to fix the problem, including: 
    • Reducing the legal entry-age for commercial drivers
    • Expanding training initiatives 
    • Attracting demographics such as women, retirees, and minorities
    • Improving the working environment for drivers. 


Speakers will include:

  • High level industry  representatives from Canada, Mexico and the USA 
  • Leading North American trucking industry executives
  • IRU’s global market intelligence team  


This event will be held virtually by Zoom video conference, in English and Spanish.

The North American Transportation Forum (NATF) brings together IRU members, supply chain leaders, the wider industry and governments to improve cross border transportation and logistics in the region.

10am–11am (Ciudad de México/CST); 11am–12pm (Ottawa/Washington/EST)
