  • Shutdowns Supposedly Over Coronavirus (COVID-19) Is Taking A Toll On The Trucking Industry

    Although there was a heavy demand for truckers and trucks at the onset of the shutdowns imposed by elected officials due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), that demand has cooled significantly.

    Because many so-called "non-essential" businesses have been shut down, they cannot use the products that they would ordinarily be using if the economy was rocking along as it had been.

    There is no telling how long this situation will last, but we are definitely in favor of ending the shutdown now.

    If you need it, see our Earn More, Save More section below for potential help.

Every week, Vicki compiles information for her TDMST Weekly Round-Up trucking commentary.

In the issue for the week ending April 11, 2020, (linked above) she included these news snippets:

  • An April 6, 2020, article stated, "Independent and leased owner-operators are increasingly feeling the pain of a rapidly constricting economy, based on a weekly survey of Overdrive and Commercial Carrier Journal readers."

  • An April 9, 2020, article stated: "The sudden, sharp economic fallout is one felt by many owner-operators and small fleets, no matter their type of freight."

  • On Friday, April 3, Bob Costello, chief economist for the American Trucking Associations (ATA), predicted that "over the next few months" -- because of federal guidance and state and local "stay at home" orders -- much of the U.S. economy will grind to "a screeching halt."

Some truckers may be looking for income from outside the trucking industry.

Perhaps now is the time to consider starting to earn a second income that has the potential to become your primary income.

We have seen snow at all times of the year in certain places in the continental USA.

Please watch weather patterns and take precautions not to be caught in treacherous weather.

You are the one who is in charge of operating your truck, so evaluate carefully whether or not it is safe to travel when weather turns bad (or is forecast to turn bad).

We wish you a blessed Resurrection Day on Sunday, April 12!

To all of our readers who are professional truck drivers, we wish you safe travels and lots of money saving opportunities on the road!
