Procter and Gamble feeling effects of nation wide truck driver shortage

P&G Commercial Truck Driver Shortage

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Procter and Gamble’s transportation costs at their Albany plant are increasing because of the shortage of commercial truck drivers.

This could lead to an increase in the price of products made at the plant.

This is according to Werhner Washington, P&G’s Albany Plant Manager.

Washington said the plant’s trucking companies don’t have enough drivers or diesel mechanics.

“But how this helps P&G, is it allows them to keep their operating costs very low, and then they pass on those savings to P&G, it helps to keep out plant strong such that we can continue to create jobs for Albany-Dougherty County,” said Washington.

Albany Tech offers both the CDL and diesel mechanic training.
