    Where do you get those numbers? I don't believe it's that few of younger people and the average age of truckers is actually 49. That's always been the average age. There's really no difference between then and now. The reason that was the average age 25 years ago and will still be the average age 25 years in the future is that for whatever reason trucking attracts a lot of people as a late second career choice. That's not going to change. Trucking isn't going to "age itself out of drivers". The revolving door of truckers will continue on as it always has.

    Bud, average age is the middle usually more than the minority in the industry *average age* the MIDDLE leaning towards a, MAJORITY Etc... The numbers are there as a subpar basic example of numbers if you can not grasp it. I did NOT make up the website showing the average age of a trucker. I simply used it as a reference (proof) determining the average age of a Trucker in the Usa. If you want dispute it with the website stats creator. Click the Website link Again: How many truck drivers are in the USA? And why we need more

    Regardless it's not really a problem and never has been. Trucking has always been like that. The freight gets covered. Nothing to see here other than Schneider talking about a driver shortage? Their whole business is built on cheap labor and turnover.

    I didn't say there's a majority of 20 somethings out here but I see them every day. They post bs on YouTube. They're not unheard of. It's not a crisis for trucking that mostly older people are and always have been doing the job. That article you posted is just an advertisement for Schneider.
