The global forest products trucking market is expected to decline from $175.77 billion in 2019 to $173.78 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.1%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities resulting in operational challenges. The entire supply chain has been disrupted, impacting the market negatively. The market is then expected to recover and reach $214.23 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 7.2%.
The forest products trucking market consists of sales of forest products trucking services and related goods by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that provide over-the-road transportation of forest products. Only goods and services traded between entities or sold to end consumers are included.
The Asia-Pacific was the largest region in the forest products trucking market in 2019.
In August 2018, Leavitt’s Freight Service, a US-based specialty carrier of utility poles and engineered wood products, merged with Daseke-affiliated Central Oregon Truck Company. The merger will allow both the companies to cut costs by sharing each other’s facilities for service, maintenance, and fuel as both the companies operate in the Northwest along the I-5 corridor.
The forest products trucking market covered in this report is segmented by type into log transport; chip transport.
The shortage of truck drivers is a major challenge in the forest products trucking market. According to the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) USA estimates, there is a shortage of 50,000 truck drivers and this is expected to increase to 174,000 by 2026. Moreover, according to an article in the Canadian Press, due to the shortage of truck drivers, Weyerhaeuser, an American timberland company, lost $10 million to $15 million in the fourth quarter. By 2024, the average age of truck drivers is expected to be 50, the shortage is expected to be between 38,000 or 48,000, and more than 10,000 trucker drivers retire every year. Therefore, the shortage of truck drivers is expected to limit the growth of the forest products trucking market.
