The Driver Shortage Affects Not Only Trucking Companies, But Consumers Too- That Means Everybody.
The driver shortage continues to be an issue- even with over 3 million CDL drivers currently working, there is still an approximate 50,000+ drivers needed to fill various positions in the industry.
The unfortunate reason for this shortage is due to the age gap between seasoned drivers and newer drivers. The number of drivers approaching retirement is at a significant percentage higher than new hires.
At the pace the trucking industry is going in regards to driver retirees to new driver ratio, this will have a negative impact on consumerism, causing rates to escalate due to the lack of logistic services and delayed delivery times.
For this reason trucking companies and CDL providers are heavily marketing the industry, it is also a very lucrative career, now more than ever. It is important, however, to recruit and put only safe drivers on the road.
