The trucking industry is one of the most important parts of the American economy, and Maine truck drivers play a crucial role in the state’s economic growth and continued success. One out of every 16 jobs in Maine falls within the trucking industry, and there are more than 5,800 trucking companies currently operating within Maine. The trucking industry provides more than 30,000 jobs to Maine communities, and almost 85% of those communities rely solely on trucking to receive the goods they use every day. About 95% of all manufactured goods are transported by truck in Maine for about 82,000 tons transported each day.
The trucking industry pays out nearly $2 billion in wages each year with an industry average salary of more than $44,000. In 2016, the Maine trucking industry contributed more than $170 million in state and federal roadway taxes. Maine truckers drive more than one billion road miles each year, and the average five-axle trailer-semitrailer combination paid about $8,900 in federal roadway taxes and more than $9,000 in state highway user fees and taxes, a much higher tax margin than other Maine companies.
