A new technology that could eliminate truck drivers from the equation has been in the works for decades, but it has yet to become a reality.
With new technology and equipment making trucking safer and more efficient, the industry is slowly moving toward a future where it is possible to make a ton of cargo on the truck in under an hour.
In recent years, a lot of trucking has been moving into freight- and cargo-only models, which means truck drivers will be removed from the picture entirely.
While that is a step in the right direction, it’s not a panacea.
As it stands now, it is hard to get accurate data on how many people are working in freight operations and how many trucks are driving.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has estimated there are between 15,000 and 25,000 truckers in the U.S., with the majority working in cargo and freight-only operations.
With the industry moving forward, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BITS) has issued a study that will provide a much more detailed picture of the industry and its drivers.
The BLS found that there are about 2.2 million truck drivers, of which about 1.5 million work in freight and about 800,000 are involved in trucking.
While the BLS did not include drivers who are involved with both types of operations, it found that about one-quarter of drivers were employed in both types.
While there is still some room for improvement, the study says it is an encouraging step toward a safer industry and a better economy.
“There are many steps to take, but the first step is making sure that all of our drivers are trained to be trained,” said Mark Reitzell, vice president of transportation for the BLSA.
“It’s a very, very small step, but I think it’s a significant step,” he added.
While trucking is not the only industry where people are being trained for more advanced jobs, truck drivers are being replaced with new technology to help them do their jobs safely and effectively.
“For many years, the truck driver has been the guy who got you where you were going, so it is a very familiar experience,” said Reitzel.
“And it’s becoming much more important as we’re moving into the new technology.”
The BLS estimates that in 2019, there will be about 7.5 billion miles of new highway infrastructure across the U.
“That means if the technology is implemented, it will help reduce the number of accidents and fatalities on the road.”
If it works, it could make a huge difference in the amount of time we can dedicate to driving to work,” said BLS Vice President Mark Reetzell.
It will also reduce the need for more truck drivers.
According to the BJS, trucking traffic is up 5.8 percent over the past five years, and the number has increased by 12 percent since 2010.
It’s not just the industry, either. “
The industry is changing and evolving and it’s changing for many reasons, so the trucking industry has to adapt,” said John Lassiter, CEO of Trucker Solutions, a trucking technology company based in Phoenix, Arizona.
It’s not just the industry, either.
According the Buses report, the number and type of people who drive for trucking are also changing.
Truck drivers are more likely to be younger, female, and working in rural areas.
As people get older and more likely out of the workforce, they are also more likely for their truck to be in a low-mileage, freight-hauling-only model.
In order to stay competitive, truckers are also likely to work more hours.
And in a recent survey of truck drivers conducted by Trucking Solutions, more than 90 percent said they would be willing to accept a lower wage if they could see the benefits of being in a truck.
According to Lassitter, the changes are taking place at a time when the industry has struggled to adapt to a new era.
“We need to continue to learn from the old and the current industry, and we have to do that through the development of new technologies and equipment,” he said.
While trucks will remain an important part of the freight industry, it won’t be a permanent solution.
It will likely be replaced by a new technology, like a smart vehicle or driverless truck.
