Horsham, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2019 -- As the region's renowned provider of Class A driver jobs throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, TQM Logistics understands that the trucking industry is currently undergoing a transformation. From the implementation of new technology to shortages in the workforce, drivers in this sector face a host of emerging issues. Now, the premier trucking company is advising on some trends that drivers should be aware of in the coming year.
One of the most significant developments in the trucking industry over the last few years has been the use of self-driving and electric trucks. In fact, many manufacturers tested their own versions of electric semi-trucks last year. In 2019, the industry can expect this trend to continue, with the development and adoption of this technology moving forward as the years progress. However, most industry experts believe that it will be a decade or more until these self-driving trucks are fully deployed.
Another trend to watch for in 2019 is the continuing shortage of drivers in the industry. Currently, the sector is about 50,000 drivers short. Additionally, the National Transportation Institute expects the wages for truck driver jobs to increase this year, creating some lucrative opportunities for drivers across the country.
Finally, the implementation of new technology in the trucking industry continues to maximize its efficiency and safety. For instance, artificial intelligence will become increasingly integrated into the industry, becoming more mainstream in 2019. This includes using technology for freight matching, predictive equipment maintenance, and pallet loading.
