It has been observed that 34% operational costs of transportation are done in pay of the driver. It has been assumed that by the year 2024, the overall shortage of the truck drivers will be 175000. Most of the new applicants who applied for a truck driver were not qualified. In the next ten years, there will be requirement of 890000 new drivers. The shortage in the drivers can be analyzed by carrying out the motor surveys. While carrying out the surveys related to the data it is important to do the estimation related to the driver shortage and the truck drivers. In order to do the same, it is important to have the demographic driver data, growth of population by the age data, tractor counts and the projected information related to the economic and industrial information related to the model and forecast of the truck driver shortage. One of the primary steps in the same is to determine what kind of data is to be included for the truck drivers or commercial drivers. The calculation of the driver shortage generally requires two steps. The first step is the determination of the current demand for the drivers.
In the same, the census bureau data has been used to determine of the employment related to the industry, civilian labor force numbers and the demographic data regarding age and gender. In addition to this, changes in the regulations include the requirements of the age or productivity of changing the regulations such as the hours of service rules for the truck drivers.The analysis of the cost of trucking is done by the Annual transportation Research Institute which provides more and more marginal cost on the motor career operation. The research was instantiated by some of the big research committee. The RAC may be sought to calculate the reporting calculations such as the $370 per hour. This has been done on the calculation of 10,000 requests for the Analysis of the Operational Costs of the Trucking Reports. This is done on the basis of survey by focusing on the primary and secondary components related to the Carrier Marginal Costs per mile (CPM) which allows for the comparative analysis across the different models in the industry. In the survey there are around 54833 tractors and around 154,993 and their operations.
