Trucking Jobs Are In High Demand as Economy Improves

Some say the economy is showing signs of improvement.  Whether or not you agree with that is up to you, but one thing is for sure -  truck driving jobs are in high demand right now. 

Trucking companies such as USA Truck and PAM Transport truck-driving-job-usa-truckare among the many looking to fill truck driving jobs with qualified truckers as soon as possible.  Trucking and transportation publications over the past few weeks have several articles focused on the demand for truck drivers being placed in truck driving careers. 

Below are two quotes from articles originally published in Transport Topics discussing the demand for truckers with great CDL training and the resurgence in truck driving jobs.

"As recently as the first quarter we didn't see a lot of change, but about three weeks ago it was like someone turned on a light switch and we have more demand than we can supply," said Jeff McCaig, chariman and CEO of Trimac Transportation and outgoing chairman of National Tank Truck Carriers.

"Ive been banging around this industry for over 45 years, and I don't remember seeing the demand for trucks like this," the new NTTC Chairman Steve Rush, president of Carbon Express told
Transport Topics.

We wrote a trucking job blog post a couple of weeks ago addressing trucking career opportunities and reading quotes like this confirms that trucking companies are in demand for properly trained truck drivers.  If you have been considering a job in trucking, now is the time to get that trucking career going while the deman remains so high.
