5,600 Jobs Added in February

Posted by Genie Wood on Fri, Mar 08, 2013 @ 12:25 PM

Estimates released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 5,600 jobs were added by for-hire trucking companies in February of 2013. These added jobs contribute to a total of over 21,000 jobs being added to the trucking industry since November 2012.

This increase is a 3.2% jump from the total number of jobs in the trucking industry at this time last year. Additionally, these numbers for trucking-related jobs are only reflective of for-hire trucking companies; they do not include jobs added to or taken from private trucking companies or other trucking-related industries.

Despite the increase in the number of trucking-related positions and the overall decrease in national unemployment, truckers and trucking companies may still find themselves facing financial burdens, especially when customers fail to pay for services rendered in a timely manner.
