Recently our partners at Benesch issued a white paper entitled:
"Three Ways the Shale Boom Will Impact the Trucking Industry".
The three are:
1. Oil and gas are spurring growth in trucking due to its impact on the manufacturing sector of the economy. Tankers should benefit most.
2. The driver and mechanic shortage are perceived by the trucking industry as the greatest barrier to capitalizing on this growth.
3. Complying with new federal transportation law and state laws relating to oil and gas production are important thresholds for the industry.
This white paper is well worth reading for its insights into this significant business opportunity.
