Delivering Excellence reported that Qualified Truck Driver Shortage Increases Logistics Costs


Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2014 -- The Delivering Excellence newsletter reported there is a significant truck driver shortage. No container or straight truck or trailer moves without, at some point, a truck driver. Even so, trucking companies, especially truckload carriers, often have great difficulty finding, hiring, and keeping drivers. Nearly every period of economic growth is accompanied by a driver "shortage," including the recovery that began in 2009. Today's shortage is truly a demographic lack of available qualified drivers, and trucking companies, logistics providers, and shippers must work together to finally resolve trucking's "driver problem," or transportation and logistics costs will rise substantially, putting supply chains at risk.
