There’s a serious and growing shortage of long-haul truckers in the U.S. that is driving small freight-hauling companies right off road.
By some estimates the U.S. is light about 40,000 truck drivers, a number that could double as the economy improves. As a result, there are available trucks, loaded with cargo, sitting idle for lack of a qualified driver. If you’ve seen the statistics, you and your supply chain professions might be worried.
We want you to know that the changes are not affecting our customers.
