The trucking industry is huge (4 times larger than air/rail/boat combined) and it’s getting BIGGER. It’s expected to grow thru 2026. This is our opportunity to grow OccMed with it.
From start to finish, America’s trucks make up an integral part of the supply chain.
You’ve probably seen big rigs and smaller trucks rolling down the highway. But from what I see, few people understand just how important the trucking industry is to our economy.
In short, trucks haul all the goods allowing modern society to function on all cylinders. An estimated 10.5 billion tons of freight per year is transported by trucks across every industry imaginable
Without trucks, all other industries remain at a virtual stand-still.
The problem is freight volumes are surging.
By 2027, the amount of freight delivered by trucks will jump another 27 percent.
But, as The Wall Street Journal reports, we’re facing “a nationwide truck shortage.” New truck drivers are lagging way behind the roaring freight market.
The American Trucking Association says a driver shortage has existed for the past 15 years.
By some estimates, the demand for truckers is now four times the supply.
Leading industry website Trucks.com recently stated that “the industry will need more than 96,000 new drivers annually for the next 10 years to keep pace with consumer spending.”
That’s almost 1,000,000 more drivers needed to move our economy forward.
Despite the current driver shortage, things are starting to pick up.
A recent study shows truck driver is “the most dominant job in 29 U.S. states.”
Even the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects a positive jobs outlook for the industry. Trucking is now growing at the fastest pace for the industry since 2015. And it’s expected to keep up the pace with a 6% annual growth rate well into 2026.
