Brought to you by the American truckers!

Every Holiday season you probably visit your family, whether they are next door or across the country. For many of us, this is the best time of the season. Gathered together with family and friends for a warm holiday meal, by the shiny Christmas tree most likely.

Yet, did you know that in one industry, for many of its employees, things are completely different? This industry makes our holidays and many important dates happen. Are you still wondering what this industry is? It is, in fact, the unpopular trucking industry. For all the goods on your table, you have to thank the unpopular American truckers.

When the trucks stop rolling …

The American truck drivers never stop moving, whether it is a major holiday or not. Many people don’t realize that almost everything we put on our tables has been transported by a truck.

Today’s roads are full of trucks hauling products and materials across the US. These long-haul rivers are away from home for days and even weeks to bring us what we need, including food and clothes. Any truck driver will confirm that this is a lifestyle, not just a job.

So, you will be surprised by the tons of trucking jobs in the US very few people want to take. And consider this, the trucking industry is one of the biggest industries in the US, and it’s still growing.

It’s an interesting topic for debate because, in a shrinking economy, one would wonder how come the trucking industry is growing. Well, this is partially due to the fact that many goods are imported from abroad and then distributed all across the US.

The other reason, of course, is that many goods simply come from one state only, and again, have to be distributed throughout the States.

America runs on trucks, not on donuts.

So, the industry is growing, but there aren’t enough drivers. Why? Because this new lifestyle is hard, and not many are willing to commit to it. Also, many experts and amateurs alike see truck driving as one of the deadliest jobs in the world. By deadly, we mean the few facts mentioned in the article on and more.

Truck drivers are constantly on the road, most of the time eating various unhealthy foods at the truck stops. This positively leads to obesity, in most of the drivers, spinal injuries, and in some cases, to heart problems and cancer.

Long–haul truck drivers sleep in their cabins, (sleepers; some have very nice cabins!). But this is not a normal comfy bed, so a good night’s sleep is also kind of missing. This then leads to sleep deprivation, which can be deadly in this profession.

People say one-second distraction could lead to a life of anguish. That, in combination with the lack of physical exercise, can be the end of an unhappy tale.

Work-related accidents are also common in the trucking industry. Accidents on the road, leading to death, happen very often, accounting for about 12% of all work-related accidents in the country. Now, imagine a truck rolled over in the middle of Wyoming, in the winter and the nearest hospital is hundreds of miles away. If you have ever driven through Wyoming, you will know that this is a scary scenario.

But let’s say the case is milder. The truck driver has felt some pain in the abdominal area, a symptom, which to most of us living the city lifestyle, means doctor’s appointment on the schedule. Yet, a truck driver, away from home will often ignore the symptom and eventually forget about it. Health-related issues are one part of the high turnover in the trucking industry.

Another very real problem, many truck drivers won’t confess is loneliness and depression. If you would like to read one real truck driver’s story about life on the road check Brett Aquila’s story.

Just last year, the President’s Administration pushed a new law implementing new rules and regulations in the trucking industry. They all say it will help the industry and make America’s roads safer. If you haven’t heard of the new law, MAP21, or America Moves Ahead for Progress, now is the time to research more about it.

Now, do you see yourself becoming a truck driver? Check out “Truck driver’s traits” for more in-depth information about becoming a truck driver.

Do you see an alternative for the trucking industry? Maybe in the future, all trucks will be operated by robots, or remotely.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
