Containerized cargo shipments account for a large segment of the United States transport infrastructure; an estimated 1.7 million semi-trucks (also known as tractor trailers and big rigs) carry nearly everything we buy or build. Diesel fuel powers these semis as they travel an estimated 150 billion miles annually, accounting for more than 12% of the fuel purchased in the U.S. The fuel efficiency of diesel semis is, on average, an abysmal 5.98 to 7.3 miles per gallon, which makes the trucking industry ripe for change according to North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) (see link on side 2).
Tesla is planning to roll out a line of electric semis in 2020 and PepsiCo, Walmart, and UPS have committed to buying a few hundred. While more infrastructure is needed to ensure the success of this new approach to trucking, electric semis are becoming an attractive option for companies to consider now, as their current fleets of diesel trucks age and become nonoperational.

It goes without saying that in this situation, the safety and well-being of our fellow human beings are paramount and all efforts should be focused on preserving human life. However, there is a trickle-down effect of this pandemic that permeates almost all aspects of life. One area that is likely to see more than a trickle is on the highway, where commercial trucking regulations have been eased while other drivers have been mandated to stay off the road. The net effect of that seesaw is crucial to the safety of truckers in the coming months and subsequently will be of interest to commercial auto insurers.
Distracted driving is often blamed for the recent flattening of the overall vehicle fatality curve, but there are other causations at play, especially in regard to trucking. Given that the fatality trend appears to change around 2009, in the heart of the 2007-2010 global financial crisis, another possible theory is that the health of the economy has an influence on driving behavior. A recent Milliman article observed an inverse relationship between private passenger collision frequency and the unemployment rate.5 It seems plausible to believe that a similar relationship exists for trucks as well given their key role in an expanding economy. Monitoring this relationship will be especially important as we see unprecedented increases in unemployment coupled with decreased traffic from stay-at-home measures.
