i believe we had a shortage of 35,000 truck drivers last year. this is not just a glut, it is limited number of qualified drivers. why, i believe if you have taken drugs or have criminal record you cannot get truck drivers license. I expect restrictions on licenses will be adjusted in the future.
When we take our dog for a walk, we go by some train tracks and we have seen a lot more trains going by with just containers on them than usual. We even saw some with containers from UPS. Not having enough drivers will probably be an issue until the driverless trucks come out or they decide on a way to get more people to drive trucks, at least in the short term.
