It’s an industry on the rise; there has never been a better time to become a truck driver. Or, if you’re already a truck driver, the time is now to make the most of your career. Bay & Bay Transportation, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is the transportation company to have your truck driving career with.
The trucking industry has definitely seen changes in the last few years. According to American Trucking Associations, the truck driving industry is experiencing a driver shortage of an estimated 35,000 to 40,000 drivers. This shortage is expected to increase as truckers retire. The industry is working to find solutions by raising pay between 8% and 15% and adding sign-on bonuses.
In another industry trend, there are companies creating luxury cabs that trucking fleets are finding to be an attractive way to both draw in new drivers and retain more seasoned drivers. Some companies such as Bolt and Legacy Sleepers are building new, fancy luxurious custom cabs for truckers. While the price tag is extravagant, when you spend 11 hours on the road, it sure is nice to have a custom built home-away-from-home in the truck with you. It absolutely beats the normal, federally regulated sleeper berth that we in the trucking industry know so well.
