With the U.S. economy improving, and with a rise in consumer demands and housing, trucking companies are scrambling to find truck drivers to bring goods to the market. According to the American Trucking Association (ATA), there is a shortage of over 35,000 truck drivers in the trucking industry. This shortage has resulted in steep hike in freight rates as it has left major carriers struggling, which can potentially contribute to inflation.
