The trucking industry is an area of American commerce and trade that does not only impact those working within it – it concerns the entire country. When loads get dispatched, drivers hit the road, and individuals working behind the scenes coordinate it all, the rest of us see the direct results of the hard-working men and women making it all happen. Consumers in the country can thank the trucking industry for providing them with opportunities to buy their goods at nearly any time of day, and those who a hold trucking job work around the clock to create this convenience.
It is estimated that nearly 70% of domestic freight is transported by means of trucking. This figure translates to approximately 10.5 billion tons of freight moved annually, which accounts for an insurmountable amount of items that hit the shelves for folks in the country to buy. Without the expansion and innovations of the trucking industry, our society would not be able to keep up with its tendency to expect instant gratification or a wide array of products from all around the globe.
Though the trucking industry serves a particular and specific purpose, this is not to say that it is one-dimensional in its scope and the stories that surround it. The fact of the matter is that trucking has served as an occupation, providing trucking jobs around the nation, as well as a general lifestyle for those involved. The trucking industry in America is as much a large and well-known subculture as it is an enormous and infamous facet of business. Companies and fleets of all sizes thrive in the market of trucking, and every individual driver has a unique story that helps shape the current state of trucking.
Countless men and women have been afforded the pleasure to hit the highway and see more of the country than they ever thought imaginable thanks to the opportunities provided by the need for drivers in the country. The trucking industry has helped keep the spirit of the nomadic lifestyle alive, a feeling that many who drive often carry with them as they work endlessly navigating the open road. Trucking is one of the few industries left in the country that can support those within it to lead interesting and exciting lives filled with a variety of experiences and chance encounters.
American roadways and life is profoundly impacted by the presence of the trucking industry. Whether it's the 3.5 million individuals that hold a trucker job or the incomparable growth that commercial trucking provides to the country's economy, our culture simply would not be the same without the trucking industry. There's never a dull moment within the world of trucking and there is always a new story to be found on the open road.
