With the second largest state population in the country, it’s to be expected that Texas would have one of the largest truck driving labor forces in the United States. After all, everything is bigger in Texas…including the amount of heavy truck drivers! With 144,900 heavy truck drivers and 54,000 light truck drivers, the Lone Star State actually has the highest trucking employment in the country. So as one might imagine, Texas truck driver jobs are a’plenty!
Texas Trucking Industry
Texas is home to some of the largest cities in the nation, including Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and Laredo, and is a huge transportation/trucking hub due to Texas’ proximity to Mexico. Laredo is the world’s largest inland port, and the majority of trucking companies have a facility in Laredo purely because of the city’s vital role in international trade between the United States and Mexico. In fact, more than 47 percent of U.S. international trade crosses through Laredo. This obviously means there’s a huge demand for trucking in Laredo and Texas as a whole.
