How to Protect Your Business from the Truck Driver Shortage


The truck driver shortage is so severe that lawmakers have put teenagers behind the wheel. The industry is working hard to add more women to the industry. 

Part of the problem is an industry unwilling to pay decent wages to truck drivers. Turnover is high.

As a business owner, you can't solve the trucking industry crisis. You just need to get your goods where they need to go. 

So you might wonder: what is Aries Worldwide Logistics doing to address trucker shortage problems? 

Tapping into Our Network

One of the significant benefits of working with freight forwarding companies like ours is the network of relationships we've built over the years.

We're tapped into a network of trucking companies and independent drivers who have been trucking for years and look likely to continue for a while. We know which loyal truckers are standing by, ready to take your goods. 

Developing Hybrid Solutions

When the going gets tough, the tough get creative.

Sometimes, we can combine air and ship travel with truck travel to get your goods to the appropriate location, all while staying within your budget. 

We can do this because we're aware of routes and distribution hub options that you might not be able to find on your own. This knowledge allows us to determine routes for your goods that might not be straightforward but get the job done. 

LTL Solutions

Less-than-load drivers are home every night, addressing one of the major problems plaguing the industry: the lifestyle the drivers must endure. 

It doesn't matter if your load is on a different truck every day of the week if you have a company dedicated to keeping careful track of every shipment. Thus, we can bounce your load from short-term route to short-term route, relaying it across the country. 

Short-route drivers are more plentiful, which opens up more options. 

Many of our business owner clients don't need to ship entire truckloads of cargo. Our LTL experience helps them make the most of all the benefits of LTL, not just the reduced pricing that LTL options offer. 

Keeping an Eye on Technology

Autonomous trucks may solve trucking industry issues in the near future. While we aren't using self-driving trucks yet, we are paying close attention to the industry's innovations. 

As technology evolves, we'll continue to grow, ensuring our customers and clients enjoy the best freight solutions the world offers.
