What is the current state of driver employment?

Avery Vise gives an update on for-hire trucking jobs and driver hiring activity.

This Q&A response from The FTR Experts came from our October State of Freight webinar. View the video and the key takeaways below.

Key Takeaways:
  • After a strong recovery in the back half of last year, hiring flattened out through 2021 until things picked up in the summer.
  • Although job growth has not been particularly robust since Q4 2020, pre-employment queries are much higher as carriers find it more difficult to find and keep drivers.
