As we've seen for the past several years, the shortage of drivers in the trucking industry have caused issues throughout the US, especially as the economy continues to grow. One year ago, we posted a blog titled Trucking Industry Industry & Solutions. The article discussed the issues surrounding the trucking industry overall, how the issues would impact TRT, and ultimately our customers, what TRT is doing to combat these issues and what our customers could do to help. One year later, this is still a hot topic throughout our industry. As such, we continue to look at innovative ways to deliver products to customers on today's challenging market. An article in the Parkersburg News and Sentinel discussed many of these same issues including the fact that there is more work than available drivers and that restrictions on new drivers (age, insurance, etc) allow experienced drivers to call the shots. As we know, fewer people are choosing truck driving as a career path. And those that do, don't often stay with it. According to the article, "Students who graduate from commercial driving schools often aren’t prepared for the jobs they get, and experienced truckers can easily move from one firm to another if they are dissatisfied with working conditions or pay. Turnover rate for large truckload carriers, according to a survey done by Stay Metrics, a national retention firm, hit 94 percent in the first quarter of 2018" (http://www.newsandsentinel.com/news/business/2019/01/trucking-industry-in-need-of-new-drivers/).
