The Importance of Trucking on the Economy

May 9, 2022 | Bekins News & Events, Long Distance Moves

Trucking is a massive industry in the United States. For example, 3.5 million truck drivers drive 15.5 million trucks loaded with 12 billion tons of freight every single year. This freight is worth nearly $800 billion over 100,000 miles per driver! Unfortunately, infrastructure problems, economic challenges and a shortage of truck drivers has strained the freight industry, including moving companies.

Are you looking for a rewarding career where your skills and dedication are appreciated and rewarded? Driving for Bekins could be a great way to advance your career. We recognize the importance of trucking on our economy.

Keep America Moving

Truck drivers keep America moving. They transport 70% of the freight that crosses the country annually. Without them, many industries – such as the moving industry – wouldn’t exist.

Almost everywhere truck drivers are needed. Projections show a need to hire at least 100,000 new truckers every year. 54% of those new hires will simply serve to replace retiring drivers. As demands jump, jobs for truck drivers will only increase.

If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) or are thinking of getting yours, we’d love to talk to you.

How Truckers Make a Difference

Truckers deliver the food and products that line your neighborhood store’s shelves. They bring medical supplies to hospitals, gas to fuel vendors and help people relocate.
