CCJ‘s Fall Symposium next month will feature a number of sessions focusing on trucking business, equipment, technology and more.

There will be four breakouts for each topic. The business and management breakouts will focus on recruiting and retention best practices, a regulatory update, improving driver on-boarding and bracing for the Safety Fitness Determination rule. The equipment and maintenance breakouts will be on addressing the technician shortage, improving fuel economy, calculating total cost of ownership and spec’ing for driver comfort. Finally, the safety and technology breakouts will center around data-driven safety, making the most of ELD data, driver gamification strategies and strategic routing.

There will also be insider roundtables with Cummins, Freightliner, Great Dane, Lytx, Minimizer and more for attendees to discuss issues, products, services and advancements with the companies.

Symposium will also feature two keynote speakers – Scott Burrows and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Burrows, a former college football player at Florida State University and kickboxing black belt who suffered a serious spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed at the height of his athletic career, will use his personal experiences to speak about vision, mindset and grit. Flynn, a 33-year veteran of the U.S. Army, will use his experience in intelligence to discuss what businesses need know to safeguard their interests while offering insights to the nation’s cyber threats and more.

Attendees will get the choice at registration of attending a shotgun scramble golf tournament or an interactive culinary demonstration to kick off Symposium on Nov. 14. The full agenda for the event can be seen here.
