Trucks Move Everything!
Rail and intermodal transportation have been growing in recent years. However, commercial trucks still move the lion’s share of goods and materials. These statistics from the American Trucking Associations’ 2017 Trends report illustrate the industry’s dominance.
Trucking Statistics for 2016
Total Class 8 Trucks 3.68 million
Total Revenue $676.2 billion
Freight Moved 10.42 billion tons
Percentage of All Freight 70.6%
Percentage of All Freight Sales 79.8%
State and Federal Highway Taxes $41.3 billion

The Industry Continues to Grow
Over time, trucking’s percentage of the overall freight market is projected to decline slightly. However, industry groups project steady overall growth for the industry. Below are projections for the next 11 years from the American Trucking Associations (ATA).
Trucking Freight Volume Growth
For 2017 2.8%
For 2018-2023 3.4%
For 2024-2028 2.3%
Total growth, today-2028 36.6%

Driving Isn’t Automated
At a time when many American blue-collar jobs in have been in decline, the number of truck driving jobs has grown. That is because trucking has been immune to two of the biggest forces affecting the U.S. workforce today—automation and offshoring.
Driving a truck over the Interstate cannot be outsourced to India or China. Likewise, robots have not learned how to drive and park a rig. That latter fact may not always remain true, as truck manufacturers are attempting to develop trucks with self-driving technologies.

Trucking Drives the Economy (and Vice-Versa)
Many economists look to trucking as a key bell weather of the United States’ overall economic health. When more trucks are moving and freight rates are rising, that means consumers are spending more, and retailers and manufacturers are adding to their inventories. It’s no coincidence that, at a time when consumer confidence and overall employment are at the highest levels in nearly 17 years, the trucking industry is also seeing growth in shipping demand.

Trucking is Small Business
Is the American dream dead? Not with trucking, apparently. Owning and operating a single truck or a small fleet remains the most frequent route to business ownership. In fact, trucking is an industry made up of small businesses, with 91% of motor carriers operating six or fewer trucks. Over 97% of trucking companies today have fewer than 20 power units.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) there were 493,730 trucking companies operating in the United States in 2016.

Trucking Remains a Solid Career Path
When compared with U.S. household median income, driving a truck remains a good way to make a living. According to the National Transportation Institute (NTI), for-hire drivers earn an average annual income of $54,000, while private fleet drivers make well over $70,000, on average.
