Today, trucks are a normal part of everyday life. They are so common that nobody really stops to think about it when they see a truck pulling in to the local convenience store, shopping center, or warehouse. Rarely do we take a moment to wonder about that truck and what it is carrying today. And certainly we never stop to think about what it would be like if that truck didn't show up.
But let's just take a moment to conciser that right now. What if that truck didn't show up? What if trucks just stopped running altogether?
According to truckinginfo.net, there are currently 15.5 million trucks on the road delivering 70% of all freight in the U.S. That freight is comprised of the materials, products and goods used to keep our households and cities running and our families fed, clothed and clean. But even seeing those numbers it can be hard to picture just how big of an impact trucks have on our day to day life. So CDL Life took the time to put together this info graphic that illustrates just what could happen if trucks stopped running.
