Industry Overview:The trucking industry, pivotal to the global economy, was valued at over $790 billion in the U.S. alone by 2021. Dominated by small businesses—with about 91% operating six or fewer trucks—it’s faced with challenges like driver shortages and fluctuating fuel costs. Despite these obstacles, the sector anticipates steady growth, driven by e-commerce demand and technology innovations, such as fleet management software and the exploration of autonomous trucks. Always consult the latest data for current insights.

The trucking industry is a cornerstone of global trade and commerce. In the U.S., it eclipsed a value of $790 billion in 2021, reflecting its dominance in overland freight movement. Interestingly, while some large players are well-recognized, the vast majority of businesses in this sector are smaller entities, with nearly 91% operating a modest fleet of six or fewer trucks. However, the horizon isn’t without clouds: the industry grapples with an enduring driver shortage and the unpredictable nature of fuel prices, both of which directly impact operations and profitability. Nonetheless, the future looks promising. E-commerce continues to burgeon, necessitating more freight movement than ever, and technological advancements are steadily reshaping the landscape.
E-commerce Growth: The rise of online shopping has led to increased demand for transportation services to handle deliveries, from massive distribution centers to door-to-door.
Last-Mile Delivery Services: As e-commerce grows, so does the need for “last-mile” delivery services, ensuring products reach consumers’ homes from local distribution centers.
Green Trucking Solutions: There’s a push towards sustainability in every industry, including trucking. Companies can capitalize on this by adopting electric trucks, using biofuels, or incorporating other eco-friendly technologies and practices.
Target Market Segmentation
Define the Overall Market: Understand the entirety of the trucking industry. This includes considering factors like geographic reach (local, regional, national, international), types of freight (general, specialized, hazardous), and sizes of shipments (full truckload, less than truckload).
Identify Key Segmentation Variables:
♦ Geographic: Segment by regions, urban vs. rural, climate conditions, etc.
♦ Demographic: Consider company size, industry type, annual revenue, etc.
♦ Behavioral: Frequency of shipping, loyalty, urgency of shipping needs, preferred shipment size, etc.
♦ Psychographic: Company values (e.g., sustainability), brand perceptions, company culture.
♦ Operational: Types of goods, need for specialized equipment, required transport conditions (refrigeration, controlled atmosphere, etc.)
Total Addressable Market: TAM refers to the total demand for a product or service in a specific market. It represents the entire market size without any limitations, assuming there are no constraints or barriers to adoption. TAM represents the maximum revenue opportunity available for a product or service if it were to capture 100% market share. Let’s assume the global perfume market is estimated to be $50 billion annually. So, our TAM is $50B.

So, it will help you write the business plan at a fraction of the time and cost of the writer as the writer has to start from scratch.
❌ “I feel like just browsing online and using the free templates available online.

❌ “But can you garuntee that I will get a bank loan using this?
✅ No, I cannot garuntee anything for $49. The purpose of this template is to make it easier and less time consuming for you to write a business plan.
