Trucking Across the Nation

Although we see trucks on the road everyday, the average person does not take the time to think of how important of a role the transportation industry plays in our daily lives. Trucking

From the clothes you put on in the morning to the dinner you prepare, these goods reach us by the truckers driving all over the nation. Providing such vital services, the transportation industry is the backbone of our economy.

The Transportation Industry

There is an estimated 8.9 million people working in truck-related fields, and of those 8.9 million people, 3.5 million are estimated to be truck drivers. Not surprisingly, trucks transport almost 70 percent of all freight delivered in the United States. Trucking across the nation not only provides jobs for millions of people, but it helps get products into stores for customers to buy. The transportation industry stands unique as not only a provider of jobs, but also a necessity in the day-to-day operations of thousands of businesses.

Trucking Industry Growth

While many industries have shrunk or are trying to recover from the economic hardships of recent years, the trucking industry is expected to grow by leaps and bounds. In 2010, trucking industries accounted for 67 percent of the tonnage of transported goods. That tonnage is expected to increase by 24 percent in 2022, which will create a demand for even more drivers. This means you will see even more and more drivers trucking across the nation, which helps to signify a strong economy. With more jobs and a larger demand for products, truck drivers should be a welcomed sight on any highway.

Truck Driving Allows for Exploration

For many, the allure of trucking driving is connected with the ability to travel and explore new cities and towns. From hauling batteries to deep fryers, truck drivers’ deliveries can vary from day to day, as well as the destinations. This helps to eliminate the boring routines most people are accustomed to, and this makes everyday a new adventure. The transportation industry has a rich history in our nation, and trucker drivers will continue to play a crucial part in our economy for years to come.  The next time you see a truck driver on the road, don’t be afraid to tip your hat!
