Is Covid-19 Leading to Better Pay for Big Rig Drivers?

Orlando, Fla.—As we know, commercial big rig drivers in all states, including those in Florida, have faced increased health risks as they can’t avoid contact with cargo. We all have thanked our truckers for their outstanding job during a time that no-one was prepared or wished for, with so much uncertainty with COVID-19. Truck drivers have raised to the occasion making sure our people’s necessities are well supplied when they need them, and where they need them.

Although many businesses in Florida have been been following the guidelines provided by the CDC, and have taken precautions to prevent contamination since March of this year 2020 we still not yet have seen the light at the end of the tunnel. Most of those businesses have had to to cancel several events, which may sadly contribute to a slowdown in the freight industry.

Florida is America’s eighth-biggest exporter after Texas, California, New York and Washington. Our state’s exports equals 3.3% of United States’ overall exported products in 2018, totaling around $52 billion.  Right now, our freight industry is stalling due to quarantines, reduced travel and skeleton receiving crews.

The good news after all this crisis is that when we are finally out the woods, many fleet managers and logistics firms will be looking for more drivers, and the owner operators may be able to set a higher price per load to move all that freight as fast as possible, as a way to recover any loss of business during this entire crisis.

According to the American Truckings Associations, there are more than three million truckers in the United States, and about 1.8 million of them are classified by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics as operators of heavy trucks or tractor-trailers. There is no need to say as we approach the Holiday Season, that this is the time of the year when merchants, stores, supermarkets and everyone in the distribution and supply chain depends most on the reliability of trucking services.

Regardless of whether your company 18 Wheelers drive across country or serve just a few states in the region, the right types of commercial auto insurance are crucial for protecting your assets. The term semi truck insurance is often called owner-operator truck insurance. It consists of a combination of policies for commercial truck drivers to cover their legal liabilities in different situations, such as hauling cargo or non-business driving. At Orlando Truck Insurance we can provide you with affordable truckers coverage for most commercial truck and tractor trailer combinations. We also have the staff, the local experience and the customer service platform to help you walk through your insurance coverage options to keep your business well protected. Call one of our truck and commercial vehicles insurance specialists today at (407) 203-7085 to get you started in the right track, we’ll be happy to assist. We are all in this together!
