Double Digit Contract Increase for Trucking Companies in 2021 Bodes Well for New Drivers

 As North America emerges from the pandemic, many are predicting a double digit increase in contracts for trucking companies in 2021. There are many factors that are contributing to this increase, including low retail inventory levels, and the continued growth in online shopping. The only limiting factor in the trucking industry capitalizing on this years’ boost in pricing and contracts are drivers.


As many driving schools were closed during the pandemic, the availability of new long haul professionals was reduced by as much as 40%.  First Class Training Centre was one of the few class 1 driving schools that had very few COVID interruptions of their classroom time. They continued to provide the supply chain with much needed recruits.  As the competition for drivers continues to grow, new recruits can look forward to bidding wars for their services.


That means more money to start, with better benefits.


If you are considering a career as a big rig driver, the best path to a career is through First Class Training Centre. First Class has been open for business in Winnipeg, Brandon and Thompson throughout the pandemic and continues to safely train a new workforce for the supply chain. Your 244 hour investment is all it will take for doors to open for you to make a meaningful career change. As the best educator for Class 1 and Class 3 training in Manitoba, First Class Training is recognized in the transport industry as the best provider of well trained and road ready drivers for their fleets.
