“America has a massive shortage of truck drivers. Joyce Brenny, head of Brenny Transportation in Minnesota, increased driver pay 15 percent this year to try to attract more drivers. Many of her drivers now earn $80,000, she says, yet she still can’t find enough people for the job.

About 51,000 more drivers are needed to meet the demand from companies such as Amazon and Walmart that are shipping more goods across the country, according to the American Trucking Associations. The driver shortage is already leading to delayed deliveries and higher prices for goods that Americans buy. The ATA predicts that it’s likely to get worse in the coming years.

Many trucking companies are so desperate for drivers that they are offering signing bonuses and pay raises. So why don’t more Americans want this job? We asked truck drivers who have been doing the job anywhere from four months to 40 years for their views.

A few drivers told The Washington Post that they earn $100,000, but many said their annual pay is less than $50,000 (government statistics say median pay for the industry is $42,000). As for the bonuses, driver Daniel Gollnick said they are a “complete joke” because of all the strings attached.

Despite the hardships, half said they would recommend the job to friends and family, chiefly because, as Gollnick said, “it’s the easiest money you can get without a college degree.” Here are the drivers’ perspectives on America’s trucking crisis.

Would you recommend this job? “I do. I tell friends who are working minimum-wage or factory jobs to go get their CDL [Commercial Driver’s License, which takes a few weeks]. It’s the easiest money you can get without a college degree, but it’s a hard industry. You’re going to be alone a lot.”

Is the industry in a crisis? “There are not enough truckers. I’ve been running around doing extra runs, because we are shorthanded. But I’ve noticed I’m not truly picking up more physical freight. I’m just picking up at more places.”

Moving freight is a tough task that needs experience and expertise

While, many companies choose to have its own fleet of trucks for moving freight and load, it can prove to be expensive as a whole for the company. This is because buying a fleet of trucks, maintaining it, hiring numerous staff for its smooth operation, having technicians available round the clock, getting approval and licenses, designing logistic routes, maintaining smooth process, meeting deadlines, and so on, can not only increase the operational costs of the company, but can also prove to be a burden in the long run.
