Transportation is evolving quickly, as we move to advancements like electric cars, bullet trains, and even self-driving vehicles. It’s hard to know how we’ll be getting around or shipping our stuff across the country in the coming years. However, trucking expert Alix Burton posits that the trucking industry won’t go away anytime soon.
Alix Burton has his own fleet of over 100 trucks and generates a quarter of a million dollars of profit for his customers every week. “Trucking is the future,” Burton said. “The industry is worth approximately $800 billion today, and it just keeps growing. Experts predict that it will grow by 75% by 2026! Now is the time to get in on the ground floor of the trend.”
Some people are interested in getting into the industry because it seems like self-driving cars are on the horizon. Experts predict that trucks could be automated as early as 2027, or at least during the next decade. “This has more of an impact on drivers than it does on truck owners. You can always buy new vehicles for your fleet. However, I really don’t think that it will be possible to run a truck for hundreds of miles without someone being ready to take over the wheel if need be. I think our industry is going to continue to develop over the years.”
Another factor that’s changing the transportation industry is the development of more environmentally friendly vehicles. “We’re going to need to get on top of this trend. It will look much better for your company if some of your fleet is energy efficient. It will save you money in the long run too!”
Alix is the owner of Good Energy Worldwide, a training platform which helps entrepreneurs create their own trucking companies. It’s the number 1 transportation training platform in the country. The company allows people who want to open their own trucking companies to learn the ropes of the industry, even if they’ve never worked dispatch or driven a truck before. “This is one of the best industries to get into right now. I want to help people make money and reach their dreams by working in this sector.”
While the picture of transportation will likely be much different in the next five to ten years, it doesn’t change the fact that trucking will always be a huge part of our infrastructure, especially in the United States.
