That which happens over there

Trincon pointed to data compiled by the American Trucking Associations, which estimates that there are 3.1 million active truck drivers in the U.S. with a current shortage of about 25,000 drivers and that 96,000 drivers need to be hired each year to keep pace with turnover. Furthermore, the shortage is expected to grow to some 300,000 drivers within the next two years, rising to one million drivers by 2024.
