California has one of the largest state economies in the country, and the trucking industry is a crucial component of the state’s continued economic success. Each year, the California trucking industry contributes more than $2 billion to the state economy in transportation-related revenue.
Trucking’s Impact on California Communities
Almost 80% of California communities rely solely on trucking to receive the goods they use everyday, from produce and food products to medical devices, fuel, and household goods. The trucking industry in California includes small, locally owned and operated businesses, individual owner-operators, and large international carriers. All of these trucking professionals contribute to maintaining California communities’ quality of life and access to necessary goods and services.
The trucking industry supports California in many other ways besides providing goods to California residents. The California trucking industry pays more than $3 billion in annual state and federal taxes as well as 30% of all taxes owed by California drivers, despite the fact that trucks only comprise 7% of all vehicles in operation within the state. In 2016, the average tractor-trailer paid roughly $10,000 in taxes and state highway user fees as well as $9,000 in federal taxes and user fees.
The California trucking industry has also routinely fought against efforts to diminish the independent owner-operator business model that is so vital to the California economy. However, a recent California Supreme Court ruling in 2018 puts many independent owner-operator jobs at risk.
California trucking companies also remain committed to creating a cleaner environment and increasing the sustainability of modern trucking. In 2014, trucks accounted for only 17% of all fuel consumption and consumed 97 billion fewer gallons of fuel than individual consumer vehicles. California’s trucking industry has also partnered with organizations like Environmental Protection Agency to track greenhouse gas emissions and develop more environmentally responsible emissions standards.
Thanks to the efforts of California trucking professionals, the trucking industry in the Golden State continues to be a driving force of the state’s economy while maintaining admirable standards of safety and environmental responsibility.
