The driver shortfall was expected to reach the highest level on record by the end of 2017 and continues to be one of the trucking industry’s top concerns.

If current trends hold, the shortage could swell to over 174,000 by 2026 (ATA)

The issues at the heart of the driver shortage include:

Gender Stereotypes

Women are about 1/2 the US workforce, but only 6% of commercial truck drivers.

Drastic Lifestyle Change

New truck drivers often only go home a few times a month, which holds less appeal for younger generations.

Health

Fast food and gas station snacks + sedentary life of a driver can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, and digestive issues.

The ATA reports that common responses to the driver shortage include:

  • Establishing strong driver/dispatcher relationships from the start
  • More at-home time
  • providing a positive driver orientation experience
  • Pay Increases
  • Lower driving age
  • Improved driver image
  • Transitioning military personnel to careers as truck drivers
  • Demonstrating respect for drivers with comfortable training and hotel rooms
