you're looking to start a new career or are just starting off in the
working world, truck driving careers are a rewarding choice--and will
be for years to come.
We are a nation of consumers, and our economy depends on
movement and delivery of goods to various points all over the country.
Whether it's automobiles from manufacturing plants to local dealers, or
imported goods from our sea ports to internal distribution centers, the
trucking industry has become the piston in the engine of commerce in
the United States.
Forecast Bright for Truck Driving Careers
With most truck drivers averaging $40,000 a year in
it's no wonder that trucking is such an attractive field for people
from all walks of life who want to find a new job in trucking.
Unemployment as a result of corporate downsizing, desire
and the loss of manufacturing jobs to overseas markets means more and
more people are seeking a rewarding career they can count on.
Although many people believe that opportunities for
careers are diminished by increased fuel prices, this simply is not the
case. Goods still have to be delivered from coast to coast, and trucks
are still the best, most efficient method for doing so, regardless of
the cost of a tank of gas.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of
"Overall employment of truck drivers and driver/sales workers is
expected to increase [from 9 to 17% per year] for all occupations
through the year 2014, due to growth in the economy and in the amount
of freight carried by truck."
The continued increase in importation of goods from
China will only add to the need for well-trained, reliable drivers to
deliver them as well.
Technology Hits the Open Road Today's truck drivers
working conditions and more advanced technology than at any time in the
industry's history. Ergonomic seats, GPS guidance systems and
communications devices, and advanced weather forecasting are just a few
reasons that life on the open road is more akin to a daily commute than
a grueling road trip.
Many of today's trucks also have real-time trip progress
assures the delivery company and the contracting client are all aware
of the shipment's progress at any given moment.
Truck cabins are more luxurious than ever, with some
satellite television, air mattresses, refrigerators and
state-of-the-art stereo systems.
Many of today's truck stops also offer free WiFi access
that allows the
trucker to wirelessly surf the Internet when filling up or staying
overnight. This makes keeping up with loved ones--and any required work
reports--easier than ever before.
