Currently in the U.S. there are 3.5 million truck drivers employed in the industry. A large percentage of these drivers are expected to retire. An aging workforce, has many trucking companies unable to use trucks or add capacity at a time when freight volumes are steadily growing. According to the Department of Labor, currently the long-haul, heavy-duty truck transportation industry in the United States is experiencing a national shortage of 50,000 truck drivers. The average age of truck drivers in the U.S. is 55 years old.
A report from the American Trucking Associations says more than 70 percent of goods consumed in the U.S. are moved by truck, but the industry needs to hire almost 900,000 more drivers to meet rising demand. Companies are looking for qualified drivers to fill these positions.
