Trucking Industry in 2021:
Trucking is entering a year of change as the industry confronts a new phase of the coronavirus pandemic and adjusts to new practices. That last few years have been nothing short of eventful for the trucking industry. In 2018, trucking had its best year in modern times as per the ATA American Trucking Trends 2019 report, with massive increases in freight volume, strong customer demand and spending, new technological advancements, and the overall industry revenue up approximately $96 billion from the previous year. By the end of 2019, several trucking companies had shuttered their doors altogether or declared bankruptcy; things were looking grim. And then came 2020, a year no one could have ever seen coming. With the COVID pandemic bringing the entire world to a standstill, every single industry felt the repercussions in one way or another, and trucking was not exempt. The economic downturn was both entirely unexpected and devastating, with a record number of businesses closing their doors permanently, including many trucking companies.
Americas Commercial Transportation (ACT) released its North American Commercial Vehicle OUTLOOK report earlier this year, projecting 2021 to be a “transition year,” as published by the Trucker News Staff. More than 100,000 trucking companies turned to federal assistance, according to data compiled by CCJ, either for a few thousand or a few million to help keep their operations afloat.
Starting Jan. 6 this year, fleets were required to not only report instances of drug and alcohol violations to the U.S. DOT’s new Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse, but also were required to ping the Clearinghouse for every new driver hire and at least once for all of their current drivers. Through November, FMCSA reported that more than 50,000 drivers had hit the Clearinghouse’s rolls for violations of either drug or alcohol regs. Marijuana violations so far have made up more than half of those, with cocaine, amphetamines and opioids together accounting for another large block of violations.
When the Clearinghouse rule went live, the system faced repeated outages and downtime as a swell of new users logged on. FMCSA has since beefed up the system and it has reportedly worked well since.
