Truck Driver Shortage Continues

The United States is in the midst of a truck driver shortage. A few years ago during the recession, fewer truck drivers were needed at a time when the trucking volume had decreased. Today, as the economy continues to recover, the trucking volume has grown, increasing the demand for professional drivers. The American Trucking Associations (ATA) estimates that the nation is short about 30,000 truck drivers.

Penske is celebrating its dedicated drivers throughout National Truck Driver Appreciation Week Sept. 14-20, sponsored by the ATA to applaud America’s 3.2 million professional truck drivers.

Penske is hiring truck drivers nationwide to keep this country moving forward. Interested in joining our team? Visit to apply today. The company offers competitive wages and a wide range of benefits. Penske is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
