Quote:
The primary method for moving books is by truck. There is a critical shortage of over-the-road truck drivers in the U.S. and the shortage is growing as baby boomers leave the workforce and trucking companies struggle to attract good candidates into the jobs. How will publishers plan for this emerging problem?
This one is real stretch.

Consider:

[U.S.] Truck driver salaries have fallen by as much as 50% since the 1970s

If an actual problem, it will most hurt companies that ship individually boxed books (Amazon), since that packaging requires extra room on the truck.
