Truck Driving Opportunities

Over the Road

As an over-the-road (OTR) truck driver you will travel the country, covering thousands of miles a week. OTR truck drivers are typically away from home a week or more at a time. OTR drivers may be paid more as they travel longer distances. As an OTR driver you may haul a variety of freight.

LTL Driving

Less-than-truckload (LTL) drivers generally operate locally, making multiple deliveries during the day. LTL drivers earn less than other types of CDL jobs as they travel a shorter distance. However, they enjoy variety in their day and more time at home.

Dedicated Driving

Driving on a dedicated account means that you haul freight for one customer. Dedicated drivers will travel similar routes, hauling the same type of freight. Home time can vary by the customer and company you drive for, but typically dedicated drivers are home more consistently than OTR drivers.

Local/Regional Driving

As a regional or local driver, you may haul a variety of freight types over a shorter distance. Regional drivers will travel within a set region and typically get home more often than OTR drivers. Most regional drivers are home each weekend and a few times during the week as scheduling allows. Local drivers will be home daily, delivering freight within a few hundred miles of home. Local drivers typically work a set shift.

Team Driving

As a team truck driver, you will share driving responsibilities with another person. You will work together to deliver freight. Team drivers work in shifts which allows the truck to cover more miles. Teams are typically over-the-road and are away from home for one or more weeks. Many friends, siblings, and couples, enjoy team driving. Team drivers earn more than solo OTR drivers because they are delivering expedited freight and their truck is very productive.

Hotshot Haulers

Hotshot haulers typically drive medium duty trucks, pulling flatbed trailers. They specialize in delivering small, time-sensitive loads. Hotshot drivers may travel across states lines or stay locally. Hotshot driver pay is typically high due to the time sensitivity of the loads.

As a CDL driver your day-to-day activities and pay can also vary by the type of freight you haul. For example, the work you do as a regional flatbed driver varies from what you do day-to-day as a regional refrigerated driver. Read on to learn more about these types of CDL driving jobs.

Dry Van

One of the most common truck and trailer combinations on the road, dry van haulers operate semi-trucks pulling enclosed trailers. As a dry van driver, you may transport a variety of goods, such as food, medical supplies, as well as consumer goods like clothing.

Refrigerated

Certain types of freight like perishable food items must be transported at a specific temperature. As a refrigerated driver you must know how to set and check the temperature of your trailer. This additional skill can result in higher pay for refrigerated drivers than dry haulers.

Flatbed

Large raw materials like lumber, steel and machinery require an open-air trailer. Flatbed drivers are required to know how to secure and tarp numerous types of freight on their trailer. Being a flatbed driver is one of the most physically demanding driving jobs. As a result, flatbed drivers require additional training and typically earn more than refrigerated and dry van.

Tanker

Tanker drivers transport hazardous and non-hazardous liquids. To haul a tanker trailer you must get a tanker endorsement added to your CDL. In addition, to haul hazardous materials like fuel, you must have a hazmat endorsement added to your CDL. Drivers with both tanker and hazmat endorsements can expect to earn more. Depending on the company, most tanker positions are limited to experienced drivers

Road Construction

The construction industry has numerous position available for CDL holders, including dump truck and cement truck drivers. Schedules vary, but most positions are locally based.

Bus Driver

With a CDL, you will be qualified to drive charter buses, school buses and city buses. With the exception of longer charter bus routes, these positions require you to travel less miles, and as a result the pay may be lower than most other CDL driving jobs.
