The incredible amount of hard work that truck drivers put in to get the job done can be hard to sum up, but this amazing statistic gives us a snapshot of everything drivers do.
The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that commercial transport employs 1 out of every 7 US workers and serves over 7 million business’s needs, reaching over 288 million customers.
To reach the demands of the nation, truck drivers have to drive over 5.9 trillion miles across the United States. From OTR to local, driver miles combined for one year equal the same distance as one light-year. Wow!
There is no other industry in the United States that matters more in keeping America strong.
Thank a truck driver for hauling goods across America!
