The American Trucking Associations (ATA) predict that if current trends last, there will be a shortage of nearly 175,000 truck drivers by 2024! Class A CDL trained truck drivers have a vital role in the economy and are responsible for distributing goods and necessities to all corners of the country.
Improving Economy – America’s economy is finally seeing brighter days, and because so the country is increasing the production and distribution of its goods. This means a lot of positions are opening in the Professional Truck Driving Industry! It also means there is a growing surplus of goods that need to be delivered.
Truck Driver Retirees – Retirement isn’t far away for many truck drivers and their absence could leave a substantial gap in the Industry. If the retiring drivers aren’t covered or replaced, ATA’s predictions could very well come true.
The current shortage of truck drivers is great news for those looking for a solid career with incentives and job security! Carriers are working harder than ever to reward new hires with higher rates and better benefits.
