Truck Driving Opportunities
LTL DRIVING JOBS
Less-than-truckload, or LTL, is a service offered to freight and trucking companies for shippers who only need a small delivery of goods at a time. LTL drivers carry multiple shipments with different destinations on the same trailer.
OTR DRIVING JOBS
Nearly every new truck driver begins their career as an over-the-road, or OTR driver. With destinations all across the country, OTR drivers get to travel to different places all of the time while enjoying the freedom of the open road.
DEDICATED DRIVING JOBS
A dedicated truck driver will have regular routes for a specific company, or to a specific destination. Having consistent schedules allows dedicated drivers to get more home time on a regular basis.
LOCAL DRIVING JOBS
Local driving jobs require drivers to run throughout an entire day, but get home nightly. Distances traveled are shorter and drivers are typically paid by the hour, rather than by the mile.
TEAM DRIVING JOBS
Team driving means that 2 drivers operate a truck together, allowing them to travel further without having to stop as often. Because team drivers are able to run more miles, they typically earn more than solo drivers.
REGIONAL DRIVING JOBS
Regional driving jobs have routes within a designated region of the country. So, for example, a regional driver might run various routes for a company throughout the Midwest.
