The LIFEBLOOD of Oregon's Economy :  Trucking


      Wednesday, Feb. 13           Noon to 1:30 p.m.


Event Sponsored by: 


The trucking industry is a barometer of Oregon’s economy. Stagnant trucks means deliveries aren't being made. And if goods cannot be shipped, it means factories are not producing, leading to consumers not purchasing. Trucks on Oregon's highways, freeways and streets indicate our economy is moving along. Unfortunately, the trucking industry is facing several challenges, which could impact all our lives.


Oregon Trucking Association President/CEO Jana Jarvis will share how the modern trucking industry operates in every aspect of economic life from delivering school supplies to retail goods and construction materials.


Jarvis will discuss how possible Legislative changes; shipping costs; rising fuel costs; and port availability could impact the industry.A member of ODOT’s task force on autonomous vehicles, Jarvis also will share her knowledge on driver-assisted technology as well as how her organization is working to change the image of truck drivers.
