THE FUTURE OF TRUCKING

The future of trucking may look very different from what it is today.

Changes to expect in the future of the trucking industry are:

  1. AUTOMATED ASSISTANCE FOR DRIVERS

While there are some driverless vehicles being tested, it’s still unlikely that the near future will involve a rise of fully automated vehicles.  Technological advancements can improve safety and assist drivers while still having a person behind the wheel.

  1. MORE ELECTRIC TRUCKS ON THE ROAD

The transportation industry is also striving to reduce its carbon footprint. Electric trucks are more efficient than diesel-powered trucks because they produce fewer emissions, resulting in a cleaner environment. Electric trucks also require less maintenance than their diesel counterparts, saving on costly maintenance costs.

  1. FASTER COMMUNICATION

5G networks will allow faster communication between trucks and other drivers on the road, improving safety and efficiency.

  1. USE OF DATA-DRIVEN TECHNOLOGIES

Finally, the development of data-driven technologies will also influence the trucking industry. These technologies will result in increased efficiency and cost savings for drivers and trucking companies.

 

The bottom line is that the professional driver will continue to play a vital role in the global economy. Electric trucks, 5G networks, and data-driven technologies will all help to make truck driving jobs more efficient and cost-effective.

 

While the industry may be changing, the fact remains that with over a million truck drivers, trucking is one of the largest career fields in the United States. At SAN JOSE TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL, we strive to keep the industry growing by educating the next generation of truck drivers.
