Drivers are the focus of the Truckload Carriers Assn. Refrigerated Division's meeting today and tomorrow in Vail, CO.

The theme is "Drivers: Redesigning the Workplace for a New Century." A "truckload think tank" will look at ways to boost truck driver retention during the first two months of employment, providing drivers with career guidance, working with shippers and receivers to reduce waiting times and bad conditions at loading docks, and how to measure the success of these efforts.
The meeting also will include an update about pending regulatory issues.
