America’s trucking industry is the lifeblood of the U.S. economy. Nearly 71% of all freight tonnage in the U.S. moves on the back of trucks. Moving 10.5 billion tons of freight annually requires more than 3.6 million heavy-duty Class 8 trucks and over 3.5 million professional truck drivers. Without our industry, the American economy would grind to a halt. Click here for more trucking industry statistics.
