About the Industry

The crane, rigging and specialized transportation industry is exciting, rewarding, challenging and unique.

Opportunities exist in a variety of roles and oftentimes learning one position in a company may lead to another position in the company or industry.  There's An Industry Labor Shortage -- A growing number of companies report difficulties finding qualified, skilled labor. This isn't unique to our industry - construction firms are also having trouble finding qualified workers to fill key spots even as demand for construction rebounds in many parts of the US, reported by Associated General Contractors of America.
