The driver shortage is nothing new. Some date it back to the 1980’s when it was thought that throwing money at the problem would alleviate the shortage. Recent updates confirm that the shortage is not only continuing but getting worst. The Canadian Trucking Alliance’s most recent study, Understanding the Truck Driver Supply and Demand Gap, says a scarcity of some 34,000 drivers is expected by 2024 based on current trends, with a possible increased shortage of 48,000 by the same year depending on how these trends change between now and then.
