The Trucking Industry of 2012

2/19/2012 by Tanya Bons

For years we've been told about the "driver shortages" and though they did exist, they were self-inflicted. Shortages have been created and maintained by: Companies using drivers as disposable temporary labor, Driver Bonuses based on stealing drivers from other companies, Wage Stagnation, Lack of knowledge of the industry/lifestyle, and "Free Training" Schools focused on getting contracts signed, not creating drivers.

We have cried wolf too many times and now the wolf is really here and no one is listening.

Drive safe,
