A bevy of regulations is due to hit the trucking industry just as the carriers are finding it more difficult to find and retain qualified drivers. Additionally, analysts predict an uptick in U.S. GDP could create a demand spike for truckload and less-than-truckload services. These dual forces have the potential to create a significant driver shortage.
A host of questions are left to be answered:
- How might this shortage affect shippers?
- What is the status of regulations affecting the trucking industry?
- How does demand fit into the equation?
- How would this driver shortage compare to those in the past?
