As the economy slowly recovers analysts are reporting an annual increase in freight of 4 percent, while the number of drivers to haul that freight has only increased by 1 percent (Jeff Kauffman of Sterne, Agee & Leach Inc.)
Currently the company driver population is estimated to be approximately 2.5 million, with a shortage of roughly 100,000 drivers (Perry 2012). This number will continue to increase due to the heightened safety regulations and retirement of the baby boomer generation. By 2013, the driver shortage is estimated to peak around 250,000.
