Carriers across the country are actively seeking truck drivers and will continue to do so into the coming years. As it stands, there is a shortage of qualified, reliable truck drivers and the demand for them is steadily increasing. It is estimated that more than 12,350 positions need to be filled right now to keep up with supply demand across the country*.
To meet the growing demand for truck drivers, the transportation industry leaders are forming partnerships focused on training, growth, and safety by endorsing programs like AIT to train this new generation of truck drivers.
Carriers actively seek AIT-trained graduates to fill their fleets — they know AIT graduates are safe, reliable, and knowledgeable drivers looking for secure careers. The industry encourages those with a high school diploma or GED, tech or college graduates, military personnel in transition, and veterans to consider truck driving to meet the demands of the US economy.
