What do drivers want? Survey of drivers

November 15, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic battered just about every business segment imaginable for at least some period of time this year, but the trucking industry fared better than many.

Trucking lost almost 100,000 jobs as COVID-19 and ensuing lockdown orders and a soaring national unemployment rate sapped consumer spending. Trucking employment has rebounded every month since April, but still has not reached pre-pandemic levels. Drivers responding to CCJ’s 2020 What Drivers Want survey – those who remained behind the wheel throughout the outbreak – expect to bring home about the same amount of money as the previous year.
