Trucking is the dominant mode of freight transportation in Ontario, driving the economy and supplying the necessities of life to consumers and industry alike.  It employs almost a  quarter of a million people, generates over $3 billion of GDP annually and bolsters the export market to Ontario's largest trading partner, the United States.  Almost four million trucks cross the U.S.- Ontario border each year, carrying 80% of Ontario's international trade.  Every community relies on the essential services trucking provides. From moving parts and supplies to factories, to supermarket deliveries of fresh produce.  Canadians depend on the thriving truck transport industry. Today's trucks are at the forefront of technology.  With onboard computers, satellite tracking of cargo, remote speed monitoring and Internet matching of loads, transportation companies  utilize state of the art technology in modern, comfortable vehicles. There is a huge demand for new recruits.  A shortage of qualified drivers always seems to exist as retirement and expanding commerce affect the number of available drivers.  The Canadian Trucking Association estimates that there is an immediate need for an additional 50,000 qualified drivers to handle Canada's growing economy and increased trade with its North American trading partners.  This exciting  occupation provides a great opportunity with among the largest number of  job openings each year, but, to take advantage of it, you need the right credentials. If you wish to have a rewarding career in transportation, you must obtain proper training from a credible source.  CROSSROADS Truck Training Academy can put you on the road to success.
