    To ensure that freight keeps moving, funding is desperately needed to launch training programs for CDL Drivers, Diesel Mechanics and other operators. The industry is joining together to help support this mission. Please click in and read, as resources for how to help NOW are included within.

    SUPPORT NEEDED FROM MARITIME COMMUNITY

    The Lowcountry has a tremendous opportunity to house a Transportation and Logistics Center at Trident Technical College to...

    • House Commercial Drivers License (CDL) training and a new diesel mechanic program.
    • Meet the supply chain management and logistics training needs of existing and new industries, including the nearby Volvo and Mercedes plants.
    • Provide flexible classroom/lab space for economic development functions such as supplier and indirect purchasing outreach events, job fairs, workforce information and career exploration events.
    • Create new labs and provide high-speed broadband access that supports high-demand career options in areas of information technology, logistics, engineering technology, manufacturing, business and healthcare.

    In order for this campus to come to fruition, funding is required. We need your support to ensure this campus is top of mind for our legislators. 

    HELP US MAKE THIS HAPPEN | INCENTIVE INCLUDED

    We've made it very simple for your organization to help. Our ask is that you take a moment to.... 

    1. PRINT THIS LETTER, sign your name, and drop in the mail.

     You will FIND CONTACTS HERE.

    2. USE THIS SCRIPT, to call and leave your message of support. 

    3. Let us know you did steps 1 & 2 above by replying to this email

     

    WHY?

    We'd like to quantify how much support has been generated to ensure that this funding need is top of mind for our legislators. Those who notify us that a letter has been sent will be included in a drawing for a round of golf for 4 or ticket to our upcoming gala (as a start!).
