Why Trucking Is Your Best Bet
April 15, 2018, 8:33pm
There are few professions that offer the type of rewards found in the trucking industry. Whether you are looking for more stability, better pay options or opportunities to travel, working as a truck driver, especially in today’s economy, could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. And with all of the new tax incentives, trucking is more rewarding now than it has been at any other time in history.
National Public Radio, in a special segment on trucking in early 2018, highlighted a report from the American Trucking Association estimating that more than 70 percent of goods consumed in the U.S. are moved by truck. They also noted that the trucking industry will need to hire nearly 900,000 more drivers to meet increasing demand in the years ahead. That's a lot of opportunity for those with an interest in the trucking profession.
What is even better is that truck drivers are no longer defined by the limited stereotypes of yesterday. There is not just one "type" of driver employed. Today’s driving professionals are some of the most educated and respected in the industry. They come from every walk of life imaginable, bringing skills and expertise that continue to advance the profession in beneficial ways.
Considering that 55% of truck drivers in the industry are over the age of 45, according to a report from the American Transportation Research Institute, age is definitely a plus. That doesn’t mean, however, that young people should stir clear. On the contrary, the trucking industry today offers opportunities for both the young and the young-at-heart.
