Developing the next generation of truck drivers to keep our country moving.
The growing driver and logistics shortage is reaching crisis levels. An aging fleet of drivers is one of the main reasons for the driver shortage. The average age of a commercial truck driver in the U.S. is 55 years old. The average age of a driver entering CDL school is almost 35.
THE SOLUTION IS CLEAR—WE NEED YOUNGER DRIVERS AND TECHNICIANS TO ENTER THE FIELD.
The Next Generation in Trucking Association is a nonprofit education accelerator promoting CDL Driver and Diesel Technician programs in High Schools and Community / Technical Colleges around the United States.
The trucking industry is a well-paying career choice for America’s emerging workforce — without the need to incur college debt.
The average student loan debt for recent college graduates is more than $30,000.
As the need for freight transportation grows, estimates show trucking companies will need to hire 890,000 new drivers over the next decade.
