Is TRUCKING INDUSTRY really EVOLVING IN CANADA?

Did you know that the trucking industry experienced its first
boom in Canada by participating in the war effort? This
sector, which now transports 70% of our daily life goods in North
America, was indeed responsible for the successful preparation
of the Canadian forces. Because it was (and still is) responsible for
the transportation of raw materials and finished products, such
as weapons and aircraft for the army, the trucking industry was
declared essential to the war effort.
But this is far from the only way the trucking industry
in Canada has evolved. Over time a series of technological
changes allowed transportation to advance to the point where
machines have effectively conquered distance. People can almost
effortlessly travel to anywhere in the world and can inexpensively
ship raw materials and products across a global market.
Trucking industry workforce depends on market
developments
Today’s truck driver shortage is no accident. On the contrary,
it is the result of many factors that have taken place over
several years. However, one point can be made: in the trucking
industry, supply has not kept pace with demand, which has been
growing from years.While the free trade agreements between
the United States and Canada are primarily responsible, the
advent of e-commerce has changed the game when it comes to
the delivery of goods. The number of online purchases platforms
has exploded, resulting in a considerable demand for transport
that is difficult for the current workforce to meet. This has led to
a change in logistics in order to better handle the high number of
deliveries, as well as to promote LTL transport services that allow
smaller shipments to be sent from a larger number of shippers.
Technology has developed tremendously in recent decades.
The arrival of GPS,surveillance and driver assistance systems has
brought its share of innovations in road transport. ELD’s to keep
drivers work hrs track , Trucks have gradually been equipped with
cabin surveillance cameras,trailer tracking systems and many
other new technologies.These have not only improved working
conditions for truck drivers, but also improved their safety.
Furthermore, the trucking sector, previously unconcerned
about environmental issues, has adopted technologies that have
made the business greener. New exhaust filters, more fuelefficient engines and new more environmentally friendly fuels
have appeared in truck manufacturing plants. Technologies have
also driven innovation by creating electric transport vehicles,
which have won over more than one company. Electric trucks
are becoming increasingly popular on the market. Technology is
improving the trucking and so our lives as well.
There are growing opportunities for trucking to improve
highway safety and reduce fuel consumption through a wide
variety of technologies, according to a new report.
