TruckX: Launching ELD and Fleet Management App in Punjabi, Spanish

The US trucking industry has seen an enormous swing in recent years: from the booming demand era before the pandemic, with the rapid launch of new trucking firms and improved cargo volumes, to the post-pandemic recession-hit era. Successfully running a profitable trucking business is now more demanding than ever before.

So, what’s the challenge? One major factor is the shortage of commercial truck drivers. According to the American Trucking Association (ATA), the shortage of truck drivers resulted in a staggering 80,000 unfilled roles in 2021 and is estimated to reach 162,000 by 2030.

The consequences of the driver shortage ripple throughout the economy. Delays in deliveries lead to increased costs for businesses, which are often passed on to consumers through higher prices. Multiple industries that rely on just-in-time inventory management are particularly vulnerable to disruptions in the supply chain.

Thus, solving the shortage problem is crucial. To do that, companies look towards foreign or immigrant drivers. Immigrant drivers have always been an integral part of the American trucking industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of foreign-born drivers doubled from 315,981 in 2000 to 720,000 in 2021.

Moreover, according to the demographic research study done by Zippia, only 58.5% of American truck drivers identify as Caucasian. In comparison, the other half are Hispanic or Latino (17.9%), African American (14.4%), unknown (4.7%), Asian (3%), and American Indian and Alaska Native (4.9%). 

Challenges Truckers Face

Working in trucking is not easy. Long hours on the road, weather conditions, extended periods away from home, and the physical demands of loading and unloading cargo make trucking a challenging career choice for many. Additionally, regulatory requirements, such as mandatory rest periods and ELDs, long wait times, and paperwork, add to the stress and complexity of the job.

For many drivers, navigating the complexities of ELD compliance can be challenging, especially when their native language isn’t English. This can lead to frustration, errors, and potential fines. To help you and your fleet, TruckX not only offers multilingual 24/7 on-call customer support but simplifies ELD compliance and fleet management by launching Punjabi and Spanish App languages.
