Diamler Trucks NA announced that it will be laying off 1,240 workers in both the US and Mexico as result of a continued reduction in orders.

In the US, layoffs will take place in Mount Holly (600) and Gastonia (200), both of which are here in North Carolina, and Portland, Oregon (170 layoffs). Mexico will see 270 layoffs in their Santiago location.

Is this a sign of the trucking industry’s future? With the advent of things like drones, coupled with the increase in fuel prices, could trucking be taking a bigger hit than first expected?

One thing is for sure, the world doesn’t move without truckers.
