Western North Dakota Oil Boom and the Trucking Industry that supports it.
Over the past 5 years, North Dakota has benefited from the oil boom, however, the trucking industry has been stretched very thin. Drivers are nearly impossible to find, no matter the outrageous amounts of money that they’re offering to pay. One of the companies right in the middle of madness is Nelson International.
Nelson International employees have seen things that most truck dealers have never seen. They also deal with a massive farm community and both are fighting over the roads and even the train freight. For the drivers looking to buy commercial semi truck parts in North Dakota or Minnesota, people have been calling Nelson International and having them ordered UPS Next Day air, no matter the cost.
Another thing that the truck dealership deals with is being able to supply the massive amount of trucks to supply the companies. People will look to buy and lease semi or commercial trucks in this area, and it’s very difficult to get the manufacturer to change the priority of trucks as they are also extremely busy and have other promises that need to be kept.
The final problem and probably the most severe problem in the area is find a place for truck service in the North Dakota and Minnesota region. Nearly every shop in the area is back up for weeks at a time and there is nothing they can do about it.
All and all, it is a very messy place, but if you are looking for a job that pays very well, western North Dakota is the place to be.
