1,600 US Trucking Jobs Lost in September

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 10/20/2021 — The trucking industry is facing some serious challenges today and this has recently been thrown under the spotlight as it was revealed that the for-hire trucking industry lost 1,600 jobs in September. However, despite the fact that this seems like bad news the Labor Department revealed that a much bigger drop was in fact expected and these figures are not the worst projected. The loss of jobs in the trucking industry comes as transit, warehousing and courier employment experienced a significant upward spike.

In September, for example, warehousing employment rose for the fourth straight month adding more than 27,000 jobs. The increase in the number of couriers on the roads can be seen in the demand for courier insurance, which rose by 50% between 2019 and 2020. In the same time period courier deliveries of goods, takeaways etc. rose by 347%.

So, while the logistics sector is clearly experiencing change, there are still positive spikes taking place.
