The Long Beach City College Workforce Development unit announced Wednesday, the launch of its new “Harbor Truck Driver Training Program”, developed in cooperation with the Harbor Trucking Association (HTA). Funded by a $440,000, 2-year grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office and backed by over $450,000 in industry pledged commitments, this comprehensive train-to-work program will include the collaboration of HTA companies, drivers, and terminal operators at both the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, to directly address the region’s workforce shortage for licensed, short-haul truck drivers qualified to transport freight in and out of our local ports.
