America’s trucking industry moves the majority of American goods but needs 80,000 new truckers to keep up.  In response to the shortage of truckers, the White House is launching the Veterans Trucking Task Force to connect veterans to trucking jobs.

This initiative was announced on April 4, 2022.  The Veterans Trucking Task Force will work with national veterans’ organizations to create a plan to attract Vets and separating service members to the trucking industry.
