Even though it often gets overlooked, trucking has been helping move products across the country for many years. Unfortunately, due to the economy a few years ago, the trucking industry hit a rough patch; however, thanks to a growth in retail sales and factory output, the amount of products moved by trucking hit an all-time high this year, making this mode of transportation at its highest demand in years.
More Trucks=More Drivers
Due to this recent spike in activity, the demand has never been higher for more truck drivers. The downside to this however, is that it is way more expensive to run a trucking company than it was a few years ago, and now, some companies have to either offer more money up front or issue bonuses just to bring new employees in. They also have to deal with new regulations limiting driver’s hours on the road. All of these can become very costly, especially if the driver doesn’t stay around.
