Truck drivers are responsible for moving more than 70% of goods in America, and almost 6% of all the full-time jobs in the country are in the trucking industry. This makes drivers with a commercial driver’s license (CDL) an essential part of the U.S. economy. There is also a growing market demand for professional drivers. Consequently, truck drivers can earn competitive salaries and routes that offer a great work–life balance.
Job Outlook for Truck Drivers
The average annual salary of truck drivers in the U.S. is $77,955 or $25.92 per hour, while many experienced professionals earn over six figures annually.
There is also an increasing demand for certified truck drivers to meet supply chain needs and growing online purchasing trends. On average, about 259,900 jobs for heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers are expected annually, with a 4% employment increase through 2031.
