How Many Truck Drivers Are in Need of Our Services Today
The trucking industry is booming. Did you know that truck’s that are part of large companies move about 70% of the nation’s freight at any given time? There are also about 3.5 million truck drivers employed in the U.S. (or there have been since 2015, though we suspect these numbers have grown), which means that there is a demand for a variety of services from drivers. In 2013, the trucking industry transported about 15 billion tons of cargo. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has found that by 2040, this number is expected to increase to 18.79 billion tons. With so many services being made possible by truck drivers, it only makes sense to be there for them in their time of need.
Drivers are often overworked, and often very tired. So what happens when they park alongside the road to take a break or pull into a motel, without even realizing that they won’t be able to get back into their truck because they are locked out? Many truck drivers are heavily fatigued, which means that it makes sense for them to make the simple mistake of getting out of their truck, leaving for the motel, and locking their keys inside their vehicles. For that, we are here with specialized lockout services that can help any driver. Lockout services are important for that situation where you have been forgetting certain things all day and just want to take a break.
Along with that, we also offer towing services for a variety of vehicles, like motor vehicles, motorcycles, and more. Tractor trailer towing and tractor trailer repair is also available because no vehicle is too large to fall victim to an accident or lockout. In fact, there are a variety of services that could make sense to the many truck drivers on our roads. Did you know, for instance, that there are about 7 tire punctures every second in the U.S., which results in 220 million flat tires per year? Flat tires can happen of a variety of reasons, especially to those who drive trucks that have many tires.
