The truck driving industry must change to overcome negative stigmas and pave the way for a changing workforce. RCX Solutions supports the cause by providing tailored shipping solutions and rewarding careers for aspiring truck drivers.
Truck drivers work hard day and night to ensure businesses receive their products on time. Unfortunately, many people perceive them as lazy, reckless, and hazardous on the road. While there may be a few unruly drivers, the majority take great caution to drive safely and abide by industry protocol.
Recent updates to truck driver laws now require drivers to limit their hours and take more frequent breaks. These laws require drivers to get sufficient sleep, prohibiting certain late-night-to-early-morning shifts. Drivers must also regularly inspect and maintain their vehicles and pass a drug screening before taking the wheel. The industry is working hard to make the road safer for everyone, which will hopefully change the public’s negative image of truck driving.
