Trucking companies across the United States have been struggling to fill positions for drivers according to the Associated Press.

The article says young people are becoming less willing to take up jobs hauling materials across the country.

U.S. companies are expected to create more than 115,000 truck driver jobs per year through 2016, but the number of Americans getting trained to fill those jobs each year is barely 10 percent of the total demand, said Page Siplon executive director of the Georgia Center of Innovation for Logistics.
The lack of interested drivers has caused concern to some business owners, but the article claims many are trying to find incentives to make the job more appealing.
