Driver Economics

Do you know any drivers that are out of work? If you do it’s a rarity. There is still a high demand for Commercial Truck Drivers and things are expected to get tighter over the next several years. So, if you know someone that has been out of work for a while you might suggest they get some training and become a commercial truck driver.

Today one in six drivers are above age 55. This is good news for those wanting to enter a field that is already in high demand, because as these professional drivers retire new drivers will be needed to replace them. Estimates have ranged up to one million additional drivers that will be needed through 2025.

More positive news for these professionals is that the number freight loads are at there highest level in several years. With more available loads and fewer drivers, experienced drivers with clean driving records should be able to earn higher salaries.
