MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The New England Truck Driver Expo is filling a critical need for local transportation and trucking companies in New England.  This event, billed as "the premier career and industry event for CDL drivers," is bringing together the area's top transportation and trucking companies and connecting them to a qualified pool of truck drivers.

An ongoing shortage of truck drivers combined with the fact that 80% of all transportation of goods is moved by trucks, has led to a great need for trucking companies. "The demand for truck drivers is only going to keep growing according to many trucking industry statistics. There has been a projected growth of 1.1 million jobs just in the material moving occupations sector through 2014," notes The Truckers Report (  It is predicted that industry growth of up to 21% will continue through 2020.

"We are excited to participate in the first-ever New England Truck Driver Expo," said Scott Lappalainen, Director of Safety and Compliance for presenting sponsor DAVIS Transportation Services, "The coming together of industry leaders and truck drivers, combined with the wealth of information, networking opportunities and fun activities will make this a worthwhile event for everyone involved. I'm looking forward to testing my skills in the state-of-the-art tractor trailer simulator."

The New England Truck Driver Expo is free to attend, but is requesting that attendees preregister on the event website – The event will take place at 325 Donald Lynch Boulevard on February 22, 2014, from 12:00PM4:00PM.
