Companies Looking Local For Drivers!
The increasing scarcity of truck drivers is having a major impact on numerous U.S. distributors, with the jobless rate in May a nearly 50-year low of 3.8 percent. Competition for drivers is quickly increasing, in part to a stronger economy and more people turning to online delivery for groceries and products.
In June, members of the National Restaurant Association said they supported getting younger drivers on the road to help alleviate the crunch. While a majority of U.S. states allow 18-year-olds to get a commercial driver’s license, they are not allowed on the interstate until they reach the age of 21.
