DRIVER SHORTAGE

The driver shortage is not new. The industry has been in a driver-deficit environment for a decade or more. However, there are a few factors currently exacerbating the shortage:

  • Increased demand for trucks and drivers as the economy transitioned from being service driven to being goods driven.
  • Aging workforce with the average age of a truck driver being 55 years old.
  • Rise in driver retirements due to COVID-19.
  • New, younger drivers are not entering the trucking industry and interest is negatively impacted by the requirement to be 21 years old in order to obtain a commercial driver’s license.
