Long-haul trucking

This Automotive World report considers the latest challenges and opportunities in the long-haul trucking segment

Special report: Long-haul trucking

Long-haul trucking continues to play a major role in today’s supply chains. For example, 72% of all freight transported in the US in 2019 was done so via the trucking industry. But it is a segment not only poised for profound change but also one facing key immediate challenges.

The most imminent challenge is the driver shortage. The average trucker age is on the rise and many nations are struggling to plug the gap with younger candidates. Introducing the latest tech and ensuring drivers feel well looked after will be key in drawing enough new employees into the diminishing driver pool.

Stakeholders must also continue to strive for sustainability, but again the long-haul segment finds itself in a tight spot on this front. The size and weight of most long-haul trucks mean this sector is likely to decarbonise slower than most others, thus OEMs and suppliers must eke out decarbonisation gains throughout supply chains and via today’s ICE tech. All in all, there is plenty to keep the long-haul sector occupied.
