Michigan Trucking Companies Struggle to Find Drivers

In a day and age where nearly every product customers purchase is transported by a semi-truck, trucking companies are struggling to find qualified drivers to fill open positions.

The trucking industry makes up one of the nation’s largest workforces, employing more than 3.5 million drivers and despite the workforce numbers, estimates say the industry is currently short 50,000 drivers. That number is expected to increase moving forward and according to the American Trucking Association, predictions say there will be a shortage of nearly 180,000 drivers in 2026.
