The shortage of truck drivers has become one of the most prominent challenges for the trucking industry. According to the latest report from the American Trucking Association, currently, the industry is short by 60,000 truckers, which is a nearly 20 percent increase from last year.
The association has warned that if this shortage continues, it may increase to 160,000 by 2028. To meet the rising demand for truck drivers, the niche acknowledges the requirement to hire more truck drivers. Currently, the industry has only 47 percent women drivers.
