GENERAL U.S. TRUCKING INDUSTRY STATISTICS
According to Zippia the trucking industry is vital to the U.S.’s economy, as just about every necessity and convenience depend on this industry in some form or another. Here are some statistics about the truck driving industry:
- Trucks move about 72.5% of America’s freight by weight.
- The trucking industry earned $875.5 billion in revenue in 2021.
- There are about 900,000 employed truck drivers in the U.S. as of 2020.
- There are over 996,000 for-hire trucking carriers in the U.S.
- U.S. trucks moved 10.93 billion tons of freight in 2021.
- There are 4.06 million semi-trucks operating in the U.S. as of 2021.
There are approximately 1.9 million trucking carriers in the U.S. This number is accurate as of February 2021 and accounts for 996,894 for-hire carriers and 813,440 private carriers. (The additional 83,235 carriers either didn’t specify a segment or checked multiple of them.)
91.5% of trucking carriers in the U.S. operate with six or fewer trucks. In addition, 97.4% operate with fewer than 20 trucks, showing that the vast majority of U.S. trucking carriers aren’t owned by large companies.
Grocery stores would go out of stock in just three days if trucks stopped driving. Not only that, but medical supplies, ATM cash, and gas would be in short supply as well. Garbage would pile up, other goods such as clothing would go undelivered, and even water treatment plants wouldn’t have the chemicals they need to make water potable.
