Penske Logistics Expert to Address Food Industry Transportation Summit

Penske Logistics Vice President of Dedicated Contract Carriage, Tom Scollard, will participate in a panel discussion titled: “Driver Shortage – Current State of Affairs and Potential Solutions” at the upcoming Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) Transportation Summit June 5-6, in Arlington, Virginia.

Scollard and a panel of industry representatives will share their perspectives on driver shortage issues and respond to what was discussed during a “View from the Driver’s Seat” - a panel discussion between long-haul truckers who face first-hand the challenges of driver shortages.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) are hosting the event, which will bring together transportation and logistics professionals from the food industry for two days of education, networking and collaboration.
