Commercial truck drivers are needed as the industry shifts into an era utilizing technological advancements and an updated work environment. A job that was once considered to be arduous, the sector has become an increasingly attractive for many reasons. The trade lacks almost 900,000 drivers and the average age of commercial truck drivers is 55 and rising rapidly. There is growing concern that as qualified drivers retire, there will not be enough drivers to replace them. Have you been considering what it could be like to drive a truck full time?
Why Truck Driving?
Traveling the open road, music playing, windows down, seeing the sights of our beautiful country. This is the life of a commercial driver. Besides the undeniable sense of freedom, there is a significant amount of job security, as the logistics industry relies on its drivers. Salaries start out decent and there is room for growth. A Class A CDL license is required for all truck driving positions and we have information on how you can obtain this license. Drivers can earn additional money by hauling different types of loads, which often may require additional licenses and endorsements. Most of the physical requirements are minimal within the trucking industry anymore, since hood releases and dollies are hydraulic and can be operated with the push of a button.
