OMAHA – Joseph Mayse became a truck driver about 17 months ago when the pandemic started.

The intermodal service is the division that transport overseas shipping containers, and that is the one in high need of drivers.
Truck drivers have been in short supply for years, but a wave of retirements combined with those simply quitting for less stressful jobs is worsening the supply chain crisis in the United States, leading to empty store shelves, panicked holiday shoppers, and congestion at ports. Warehouses around the country are overflowing with products, and delivery times have stretched to months from days or weeks for many goods.
