Trucker Couples Can Ease Long-Haul Driver Shortage


The truck­ing indus­try is launch­ing an ad cam­paign to attract more cou­ples to the busi­ness of long-haul dri­ving. The increased demand for truck­ing has result­ed in a short­age of approx­i­mate­ly 20,000 long-haul dri­vers in the US. Team dri­vers can dou­ble the legal dri­ving hours and deliv­er freight soon­er. Truck­ing com­pa­nies are par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ed in old­er cou­ples who want to build some assets pri­or to retire­ment.
