If you’re interested in a career in the Professional Truck Driving Industry, and you’ve met all CDL training requirements, congratulations! You’re considering entering a growing profession with some incredible benefits:
The current driver shortage means opportunities for professional truck drivers to make more money! Many factors contribute to a driver's salary (things like type of driving, bonuses, and mileage) so determining driver pay isn't a "one size fits all" situation. To learn more about how driver pay is determined, see How Much Do Truck Drivers Make.
Great pay isn't the only reason you should consider becoming a professional truck driver. The relatively easy-to-earn Class A CDL license, the incredible opportunities for travel, and the high demand for drivers are just a few!
Globalization affects jobs all across the country. The good news is professional truck driving is a career that can't be outsourced! An overseas worker can't transport the goods and necessities needed here in America. Because of that, and due to renewed production and an improving economy, truck drivers are in high demand! Although many men and women are already Class A CDL trained truck drivers, many more are required to meet the country's growing needs.
Some perks that come with the current demand are:
