According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, “The economy depends on truck drivers to transport freight and keep supply chains moving. As the demand for goods increases, more truck drivers will be needed. Trucks transport most of the freight in the United States, so, as households and businesses increase their spending, the trucking industry should grow.” 

The site also states that job prospects are projected to be good for heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers who have proper training and a clean driving record. 

The onetonline.org website lists a CDL driver’s median annual wage in Oklahoma at $45,680 with the typical basic-education requirement a high school diploma. 

What to know about trucking industry

Many trucking companies are trying to create a work-life balance that hasn’t been present in the trucking industry. With truck drivers hauling 70% of the nation’s freight, the industry is making an effort to attract the next generation of truckers who don’t want to spend 240 nights away from home per year. The potential for a great career in this industry is waiting for those who prepare now and earn certifications needed to get started! 

Employers benefit by reducing turnover and operations cost.

Companies are struggling to find licensed drivers to keep their trucks on the road. Moore Norman Technology Center has affordable training solutions designed to get your current employees trained and certified. Save time and resources by letting MNTC do the training for you.
