Across the United States, the demand for qualified truck drivers is quite high, with some officials saying that the industry overall is in need of as many as 30,000 drivers. However, some in the Texas transportation industry are saying that the same number of drivers is needed in Texas alone.
The need for such a high number of drivers in the Lone Star State is largely due to the incredible amount of energy production taking place in the state's Eagle Ford Shale. In fact, demand for trucking has increased significantly nationwide because of an increase in energy production.
