HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The nation’s trucking industry is in the midst of an impressive growth spurt and On the Move Systems’ (OMVS) upcoming “Uber-for-Trucking” on-demand platform offers freight haulers a cutting-edge technology based solution to keep the good times rolling.
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) recently published its U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast, which boldly predicted the industry will enjoy a robust 29 percent increase in freight volumes by 2026. “The outlook for all modes of freight transportation remains bright,” said ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello. “Continued population growth, expansion of the energy sector and foreign trade will boost trucking, intermodal rail and pipeline shipments.”
While the industry outlook appears stunningly bright, there is one potential dark cloud on the horizon: a continuing driver shortage. Reports estimate trucking companies currently face a shortage of 35,000 drivers.
“These two news items definitely indicate a real opportunity for a technology solutions company like ours,” said OMVS CEO Robert Wilson. “The predicted freight volume increase should drive demand for our shared economy platform, as firms will want to optimize these additional loads and routes. However, they’ll need drivers to haul these additional loads and our app can help there as well in connecting companies with local independent drivers wanting to contract with carriers. Our innovative platform looks like it will debut at a very opportune time.”
A recent industry outlook from Frost & Sullivan predicted trucking will soon see an Uber-style transformation, where shared economy platforms and apps, like the one now under development by OMVS, will play a major role in operations and revenue-generation.
