The Growing Shortage of Drivers

The shortage of qualified truck drivers is projected to hit an all-time high of 50,000 by the end of 2017, according to ATA, and projects freight volumes to grow 2.8% in 2017, and then follow that up with 3.4% annual growth through 2023.

Job prospects for heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers with the proper training and a clean driving record are projected to be very good. The economy depends on truck drivers to transport freight and keep supply chains moving.

Trucking is one of the Nation’s largest workforces, employing more than 3.5M Drivers.  As the demand for goods increases, more truck drivers will be needed.
