AlliedTruck2We’re back! In this podcast, we discuss the national truck driver shortage, give tips on how to land a local (non OTR) driver job – including interview tips – and what Allied Building Products can offer drivers.

“The average age of a truck driver is 49, and many of them are now retiring. This, combined with a lack of qualified drivers and industry turnover, in general, has some projections showing a need for 10,000 drivers.” – State of Trucking For 2017
