Interworld Freight wants to keep you updated about the Truck Shortage in the USA and how is this affecting the Freight Forwarding Industry.
Trucks moved more than 70% of all U.S. freight and generated $719 billion in revenue in 2017, according to the American Trucking Associations (ATA). The problem is that, according to ATA statistics, the trucking industry has 63,000 fewer drivers than it needs. That shortage is expected to increase to 176,000 by 2026. That's a problem that could slow down shipments and drive prices up.
The long-haul sector, which employs around 500,000, was in need of nearly 51,000 truck drivers by the end of 2017, the worst shortage it had ever seen.
The industry will need to hire 90,000 new drivers per year over the next decade, with half of those needed to replace retiring drivers.
One of the biggest problems in the freight industry is that truck drivers turn over each year. In fact, the ATA reports that the annualized turnover rate is 94%.
The nature of the job is driving high turnover rates with long-haul truckers spending lengthy periods of time away from their families, along with federal regulations requiring electronic logging that's cutting back hours on the road and a decrease in pay.
Consumers are just starting to feel the effects: Amazon recently increased its Prime membership fee, which includes free shipping, from $99 to $119 a year.
In short, everyone will pay more for almost everything. Nationwide, long-haul truck shipping rates were 10 percent higher in July year-over-year, excluding fuel costs.
The country is short more than 50,000 tractor-trailer drivers, a number expected to swell to more than 174,000 in eight years, according to the American Trucking Associations. Expand that to the entire Class 8 truck market, which includes other heavy trucks, and the shortage was more than 270,000 in the second quarter of 2018, according to FTR Transportation Intelligence.
The shortage has been worsening for a lot of reasons: Pay hasn’t kept up with inflation, government regulations have reduced productivity and frustrated some drivers, the workforce is rapidly retiring and younger generations aren’t drawn to a lonely job that can require weeks or months on the road with bad food and little exercise.
The industry is looking to several solutions to boost recruiting, especially among the young people and women.
