In 2014, the transportation and warehousing sector comprised 4.2 percent of total employment (including public and private sector) in Iowa, employing 63,784 workers. This sector had an average annual wage of $42,593, which is nearly identical to the state’s average salary of $42,536. Public employees also have a large impact in this sector, as postal workers make up 12.0 percent of total sector employment. Like most sectors, transportation and warehousing took a hit to employment due to the recent recession. The industry reached its employment low of 60,689 in 2009, losing over 2,000 jobs between 2008 and 2009. Employment reached pre-recession levels again in 2012 and has grown 13.9 percent over all since 2006. This industry is fairly male dominated. Men hold 78.4 percent of all the jobs in this industry.
