There’s a lot of hand wringing these days over what’s simply called a “driver shortage.” There aren’t enough qualified truck drivers to handle all the delivery demands of trucking companies in Minneapolis and nationwide.
It’s easy to point fingers and suggest there are too many older truck drivers and too many of them are retiring. But as other trucking companies have suggested, maybe there isn’t a truck driver shortage, but instead a shortage of drivers willing to work for the prevailing wage.
In most cases truck drivers are paid based on miles driven, as opposed to being compensated for all the work they do. In some cases, they can spend valuable hours waiting for warehouse workers to load or unload their truck. It can be lost time and wages.
But that isn’t the full story of frustration; rising congestion around metro areas like Minneapolis are a big source of wasted time. Road work, like the I-35 rebuild in Minneapolis, crashes and unpredictable weather can create unpredictable traffic headaches at any time.
