The Trucking Industry
Becoming a truck driver continues to be a solid career path. There are over 3 million truck drivers in the United States today and according to the U.S. Department of Labor, it is estimated that the US will need somewhere around 300,000 new CDL truck drivers between the years 2012 and 2022 in order to keep up with the amount of goods and products being transported throughout the United States on a daily basis.
You may not realize it, but practically everything you’ve ever bought has made at least part of its journey on a truck. This makes truck driving a very secure career path, as it is a profession that is required in order to keep our country running from day to day.
Opportunities for new truck drivers arise on a continual basis as skilled drivers are needed replace drivers who retire, move into other areas of work, or leave the labor pool altogether for a variety of reasons.
Truck driving is a diverse and rewarding livelihood that can offer financial security to those looking to make a worthwhile and gratifying change in their career.
