The trucking industry is invaluable to the state of Arkansas in several ways. Trucking is a major driving force in the American economy, and Arkansas holds a solid position as one of the leading states for trucking industry performance and contribution toward national economic success. The Arkansas trucking industry touches virtually every part of the state’s economy.
Trucking and the Arkansas Economy
Roughly one of every 11 working Arkansas residents holds a job in the trucking industry, including drivers as well as support roles and other logistics positions. More than 83,000 trucking industry jobs exist in Arkansas, paying more than $3.5 billion wages each year that go toward supporting Arkansas families. The Arkansas trucking industry also contributes almost $450 million in fuel taxes alone each year, which go toward maintaining Arkansas roads and highways.
Nearly 90% of Arkansas communities depend on the trucking industry to move all of their goods and nearly 5,000 trucking companies operate within Arkansas. Most of these trucking companies are locally owned and operated small businesses that support countless other Arkansas businesses. The Arkansas trucking industry is not only an irreplaceable part of the American economy but also vital to the Arkansas state economy in many ways. This includes tax contributions. Trucks only represent about 15% of all roadway vehicles in Arkansas, yet the trucking industry pays almost 50% of all taxes owed by Arkansas motorists.
The Future of Trucking for Arkansas
The trucking industry has been a staple of the Arkansas economy for many years, but the current shortage of drivers means that demand for more truck drivers is on course to increase by 20% or more in the coming years. The Arkansas Trucking Association represents more than 300 trucking companies operating within the state, fighting for fair working conditions and legislation to support Arkansas truckers and their families. The Arkansas Trucking Association continues to fight to ensure the Arkansas trucking industry remains a valuable economic powerhouse for Arkansas.
