The nation is in dire need of truck drivers!! According to the American Trucking Associations (ATA) Truck Driver Shortage Analysis 2017 report: • In 2016, the trucking industry was short roughly 36,500 drivers, which was down from 45,000 in 2015. However, the shortage is expected to surpass 50,000 by the end of 2017. • If current trends hold, the shortage could swell to over 174,000 by 2026. Furthermore, according to the Bloomberg View, the trucking industry is "...the lifeblood of moving goods around the country, representing 70 percent of the nation's freight volume by weight. Without enough trucks and drivers on the road, some combinations of things is going to happen: shipments will be delayed, and producers will have to pay higher prices to get goods to market". (read the full article here) https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-02-09/the-u-s-is-running-out-of-truckers. It simply could NOT be a better time to consider your future career in truck driving!
