Keep on Truckin'

The American economy runs on trucks. Nearly 70 percent of all the freight tonnage in the United States moves on big rubber wheels. It's not an overstatement to say that without the trucking industry and its drivers, the economy would come to a crashing halt.

But the trucking industry faces a projected shortage of 46,000 drivers in the next 3 years. That's a tough situation under any circumstances, but factor in the continued growth of ecommerce, which is putting a greater number of trucks on the road, and that driver shortage is even more alarming.
