Texas is one of the most economically significant states in the country, and the trucking industry is one of the main reasons why the Texas economy continues to thrive. The Texas trucking industry accounts for roughly one of every 16 jobs in the state, and 73% of all goods manufactured in Texas travel to their destinations by truck. Texas is also a major transportation hub for goods traveling to Mexico, and about 85% of all trade goods that travel from Texas to Mexico move by truck. Each year, the Texas trucking industry moves nearly two billion dollars in freight all across the state and beyond.
Trucking and the Texas Economy
The Texas trucking industry provides more than 185,000 truck driving jobs to the state, and the average annual salary for a Texas truck driver is about $34,500. The industry as a whole pays more than $22 billion annual wages with an industry-wide average salary of $45,000. More than 66,000 trucking companies operate in Texas, and the majority of these companies are locally owned and operated small businesses. These companies in turn support the rest of the Texas economy through partnerships with other small businesses and providing goods to many Texas communities.
For many years, the Texas Trucking Association has provided representation to member companies and their employees before local, state, and federal lawmakers. The trucking industry has faced consistent struggles with unfair tax law changes, overbearing regulations that threatened drivers’ livelihoods, and an ongoing shortage of new truck drivers to replace an aging workforce.
The Texas Trucking Association advocates on behalf of the Texas trucking industry by supporting political candidates who will advance the trucking industry’s interests and shield the industry from overbearing government interference. The Texas Trucking Association also provides training and coaching programs, safety courses, networking events, and access to service and equipment discounts through partnered businesses. The Texas Trucking Association also partners with state and federal agencies to promote roadway safety and driver safety programs aimed at reducing fatal accidents.
