Driver Shortages & Why You Should Consider a Career at TFX
October 19, 2015
Are you thinking about transitioning into a new career role? Do you love driving for a living but desire to work for a company that actively appreciates its employees and their skills?
If you answered ‘yes’, then there is no better time than now to consider joining the team at TFX International Specialized Vehicle Transport.
We know truck drivers are the backbone of the industry. At TFX International, we value our drivers as they are the front line of our business. We transport vehicles across Canada and to and from the U.S. for auctions, car shows, purchases, dealerships, movie and commercial shoots, vacations, and relocations to name a few. We are looking for drivers that desire to pursue a career in an elite area of transportation. More specifically, people who love cars and have a passion for them.
So Why is there a Driver Shortage?
The industry is seeing a shortage in qualified truck drivers due to a shift in demographics of the current driver population. Existing truck drivers are aging and retiring, and there is a lack of young drivers entering the industry. Right now, only about 12 percent of all truck drivers in Canada are under the age of 30 and by 2020, Canada may be lacking up to 25,000 truck drivers according to industry predictions.
Public perceptions about the industry are also often misguided. Truck driving is a skilled occupation and has not been well-marketed in the past.
Why Work at TFX International?
As the leading vehicle transport and auto shipping company in Canada and across the USA, our new trucks and state-of-the-art equipment offer drivers the opportunity to be at the cutting edge of the industry.
All of our drivers are top performers in the industry! AT TFX International, we offer an excellent compensation package and truly value the skills of our employees. We understand family is important; that’s why it is at the heart of our core values.
Whether you’re up for the challenge of shipping a Ferrari race car to the track or transporting vintage and collector vehicles to car shows in the US, TFX International is an ideal company for truck drivers looking for a career move. We pride ourselves on hiring professional and reliable truck drivers who can provide the type of top quality service our customers have come to expect from us.
