THE DEMAND

Truck driving jobs are among the fastest growing occupations in the nation, but fewer people have commercial driver’s licenses, and transportation companies are struggling to attract qualified drivers, according to the  Hamilton JournalNews/Middletown Journal analysis. 

The U.S. trucking industry is expected to create more than 330,000 jobs by the end of the decade, but experts predict the shortage of drivers could almost reach 240,000 in the next 10 years because of industry growth, retirements, recent regulations and competition from other sources. 

“Many of our members say they’ve got trucks, they’ve got freight, but they’ve got no drivers,” said David Bartosic, spokesman with the Ohio Trucking Association.
