Better Trucking Recruitment Methods Needed to Ease the Shortage in Oil Industry
JoTo PR Client, Advanced Training Systems, was highlighted in an article in USA Daily Times (a sister website of The Price of Business Radio) called, Oil Field Truck Driver Shortage Illustrates Need for Better Driver Recruitment and Training
Oil truck driving is a difficult job—which is why they are paid about twice what traditional truck drivers are. The driving conditions are more dangerous than traditional truck driving and many are transporting hazardous materials. Some drivers who left five years ago don’t want to come back to it. Many didn’t have adequate training and shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Now, safe and qualified oil tank drivers are badly needed.
John Kearney is CEO of Advanced Training Systems, a technology and engineering firm that provides cutting-edge, adaptive simulators for truck driver training.
John discussed the growing shortage of oil truck drivers in Texas, which could impact oil production at some point. The current shortage exists because many oil truck drivers went back to traditional trucking five years ago when oil prices collapsed, and jobs went away. With the current low unemployment rate, it’s more difficult to attract new people to truck driving in general, let alone oil truck driving.
Advanced Training Systems (ATS) is a high-tech simulator technology and engineering firm that has revolutionized the design and manufacture of advanced training systems to improve training and create safer drivers. ATS, the holder of multiple patents in high-tech training simulation, has as its mission to provide this cutting-edge adaptive training to all involved in the transportation industry at an affordable cost, resulting in safer drivers/operators.
