The trucking industry has several National Industry Associations with nearly one Trucking Association in every single US state. The flow of transportation and distribution in our nation is one of our great strengths; without it America stops. This is why the “Trucking Industry Sector” needs a Blogging platform that would lend itself well to the trucking industry’s needs.
Why, well because this industry is so large, with so many vendors needing so many things, there is a significant un-tapped revenue stream available to a Blog Platform Entrepreneur that could make this happen. As the Author of “Truck Technologies of the Future” – I have identified all the major issues and challenges of the Trucking Industry. I can see how a business blogging platform could solve these problems. For instance, by 2010 there will be a projected shortage of truck drivers in the neighborhood of 185,000. The trucking companies spend massive amounts in recruitment dollars to find drivers.
Indeed, at one industry business blog network that I participate in, which is unrelated to trucking, I have noticed that recruiters from the Financial Planning Sector, Real Estate Sector and Mortgage Sectors have contacted me for employment through my profile. So not only are those potential advertisers such sites already, but there needs in the market place are obviously being un-met, thus a blogging network should be getting money from them as they are already trolling such sites for information.
Now then, the Trucking Industry will be very similar but much more as the shortages are already causing problems even with truckload figures currently down, Year over Year. You ask who in the Trucking Industry might participate? Sure, well lets look at the potential then:
- Trucking Companies
- Truck Maintenance
- Truck Stops
- Truck Tire Companies
- Truck Forwarders
- Truck Driving Schools
- New Truck Dealers
- New Truck Manufacturers
- Truck Drivers (Driver’s Corner)
- Used Truck Brokers
If you are a Business Blogger, then please add this to the list of industries that you intend to Franchise or License your platform too, because this is the future of trucking:
