Some Good News for Truckers in 2020 - Things to Celebrate

You'll be happy to know there is good news for truckers in 2020. It’s hard to turn on the news without being piled on with terrible things happening in the world. It’s easy to get sucked into our phones or TV and the idea that only bad things are happening. But that’s not really the case. Luckily, there are positive things happening, especially when it comes to the trucking industry. This industry is known for being cyclical, with lots of ups and downs. Here are some of the ups for the new year.

Upsurge in the younger workforce

After many years in business, many older truckers are retiring. That shift comes with a big change— a wide open space and plenty of opportunity for younger generations. The 18-30 year old age group is increasingly looking for alternative career options that don’t require a college degree or lots of formal training. Today, a college education isn't viewed as an essential part of success like it used to be. That’s one of the things that make the trucking industry great. Additionally, mobile technology can be used that makes life on the road easier and more enjoyable. Another perk is the ability to travel while on the job.

Easier to save money and time

Changes in technology make practically all parts of life more efficient and easier, and this doesn’t stop with the trucking industry. An innovation for long-haul trucks will change the game for truckers in the US. After eight months of testing, The Ugly Fix has created a solution for so many trucking issues. The EGR delete kit will stop excessive engine heat and keep your engine oil cleaner than ever. Because the exhaust won't keep flowing when it doesn't need to, you'll waste less gas, money, and time. With the installation taking only 15 minutes, this is a no-brainer for those who want the best trucking experience. As an added bonus, you'll reduce your carbon footprint, too!

An opening for women

With veterans of the trucking industry leaving, there’s an availability for women to join. This population has not typically made up a large portion of truckers in the past. But now is a great time for them to join. Especially for older women, this could be a chance for them to travel to parts of the country they’ve never seen and visit family who live far away. This is good news for truckers fresh to the industry. It’s the ideal career for someone who wants a change of pace, the option to see new views, and the ability to breakaway from traditional office or customer service roles.
