Driver shortage may explode beyond truckload
from Material Handling & Logistics
While the current truck driver shortage is acute and limited primarily to the truckload sector, long-term trends could cause the shortage to explode in the next decade, according to an analysis from American Trucking Associations. "Carriers and fleet executives have begun expressing concern about their ability to identify and hire qualified professional drivers," ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello said, "and with this report, we tried to identify where the impacts were being felt the most, why the shortage is increasingly worrisome and why it has the potential to get worse."
