We’ve talked a lot about the recent upward trends in the trucking industry. Thousands of new vehicles are being sold every day, and the overall outlook for trucking going in to the new year is looking very strong. But the industry’s success is not just about owners adding to their fleets or manufacturers implementing the latest safety innovations into new models- it’s about the jobs it is creating! Trucking job opportunities have been increasing not just by the tens, dozens, or hundreds, but by the thousands. Read on to find out more about this sign of a healthy trucking economy.
As November came to a close, industry experts saw that 3,000 jobs were added to trucking across the country. Part of this was thanks to a large spike in the transportation and warehouse sector of the economy; this area added over 16,000 jobs and accounts for many trucking job positions. Businesses that will see a high demand for deliveries over the holiday season have also been adding truck drivers to make certain they are not understaffed at this busy time of year.
As the trucking industry continues to grow, we will no doubt see more opportunities for drivers nationwide to find good jobs. And with all of the improvements being made to new truck models, the drivers will be the ones gaining the most immediate benefits! All in all, it is looking to be the ideal time to be involved in the trucking industry.
