Trucking is a vital part of the American economy as well as the economy of the Pacific Northwest region, and Oregon trucking companies support their state’s economy in many ways. The trucking industry provides nearly 93,000 jobs to the state of Oregon, representing about one of every 17 jobs in the state. Almost 80% of Oregon communities rely solely on trucks to bring the goods they buy and use every day as well as ship their manufactured goods to their final destinations. About 88% of all the manufactured goods in Oregon travel by truck, more than 150,000 tons each day.
Oregon Relies on the Trucking Industry
More than 9,000 Oregon trucking companies operate every day. While some of these companies are large fleets with dozens of vehicles, most are locally owned and operated small businesses and independent owner-operators. These small businesses support countless other small businesses throughout the state of Oregon, and the trucking industry is also one of the highest contributors in the state when it comes to state and federal taxes.
In 2017 alone, the Oregon trucking industry paid nearly $5 billion in wages, and the average salary within the Oregon trucking industry was about $49,000. The average salary for an Oregon truck driver is more than $45,000, and the industry as a whole pays nearly $300 million in state and federal taxes each year. In fact, the Oregon trucking industry pays more in taxes than most other businesses. The average tractor-trailer pays almost $9,000 in federal highway user fees and taxes and a staggering $22,000 in state highway user fees and taxes, much more than most other Oregon companies.
Oregon Trucking Associations is a member-driven trade organization that supports the Oregon trucking industry in various ways. This group, including the original Oregon Motor Transport Association, Inc. and various other businesses supporting the trucking industry, provide Oregon trucking companies and their employees with representation before state and federal legislators, safety training programs, discounts, and other valuable benefits to support this vital industry and preserve its role in the Oregon economy.
