According to the American Trucking Associations, the trucking industry is currently facing a driver shortage of around 80,000. The industry is taking many different strategies to address that deficit, and two former inmates are taking a different approach to first help people and in turn help trucking. Aaron Smith and Ed Hennings both spent time in prison, but when they got out, they were determined to turn their own lives around, as well as help others. To do that, they started a box truck class to help other formerly incarcerated people, or anyone else, looking for a new opportunity.
