The transportation industry keeps American running. Whether it’s moving freight or people, transportation is essential. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, in 2018 the U.S. transportation system moved a daily average of about 51 million tons of freight valued at more than $51.8 billion. In the same year, transportation’s total estimated contribution to U.S. GDP was $1,240.8 billion.1
The freight industry has many components, encompassing companies large and small. In all there were nearly 214,000 transportation and warehousing establishments (excluding rail) in 2012, with more than one-half of those primarily engaged in trucking.1
Trucks carry all types of goods, ranging from high-value commodities, such as mixed freight to bulk commodities, like gravel, grains and gasoline. Mixed freight includes grocery and convenience store goods, office supplies, and hardware and plumbing items. Commercial airlines allow millions of Americans every year to travel for work, visit friends and family, take vacations and more. Air transportation also represents the fastest way to ship most types of cargo over long distances.
Transportation industry employees consist of more than the people driving the trucks or piloting the aircrafts. In the trucking industry there are people loading and unloading the trucks, conducting engine maintenance and those working in distribution and/or warehouse operations. The air transport industry has a vast and varied ground crew. Some work directly with the aircraft, cleaning it inside and out between flights, making sure the ramps, runways and surrounding areas do not have debris present that could cause damage to the plane. Ground staff also includes technicians and maintenance workers who are responsible for ensuring the plane is in good working order before takeoff, as well as ground traffic controllers.
The transportation industry is vital to the American economy and ORR Safety is dedicated to supporting the industry by keeping your employees safe. The experts at ORR Safety will partner with you to find the right PPE for your employees and their jobs.
