According to the Canadian Trucking Alliance, there is a looming shortage of truck drivers right across Canada, and especially throughout Ontario. With a growing shortage of drivers, demand has grown dramatically, and many corporations are being pressed to pay more to move their goods. It promises for a positive outlook for new truck drivers considering entry into the market. The trucking industry needs new drivers, and especially young drivers, because many older drivers are retiring, and doing so quickly. Interestingly, there is also a need for “quality” drivers - those truckers who possess above-average qualifications and who can satisfy the increasingly high demands of today’s employers.
