Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Truckers

A recent article from DC Velocity titled “Mamas, don’t let your babies grow up to be truckers” discusses the impact of the Great Recession on trucking industry. TCP’s third quarter Business Expectations survey is cited, which showed that 28% of carriers are considering selling in the next 18 months if conditions don’t improve. This is the highest percentage since the survey began in 2008. Batts is quoted in the article as saying that the higher costs and regulatory constraints are frustrating to executives and that “it just isn’t fun anymore.” For more about the impact of the economy on the trucking industry, read the full article here.
