Some 400 trucking jobs added during July


Trucking added 400 jobs in July, according to the latest employment report issued by the Department of Labor.

July’s gains come after three months of declines in industry employment. However, due to strong gains in February and March, trucking industry employment is still up compared to 2016. July’s total, 1.4706 million, was 22,000 jobs greater than the same month last year.

The U.S. economy as a whole added 209,000 jobs in the month, pushing the country’s unemployment rate to 4.3 percent.
