Long Haul, Regional, or Local Trucking Job?

Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Perfect Trucking Career

A Class A CDL license opens up a whole new world for anyone looking for a long-term, solid career. Take a good long look at your current lifestyle and interests. Then let’s take a behind-the-scenes look at the options available for your perfect trucking career!

You’ve Got Options

• Over The Road (OTR) – also known as “long-haul” trucking. OTR truckers are often gone for weeks at a time, going straight from one job to the next. It is ideal for the individual who wants to see the country, enjoys new adventures, and is flexible with their time away from home. It is also challenging to keep fit and healthy, so be prepared to watch your diet and make time for exercise!

• Regional – This is a great option for those who prefer a little more home time. Normally not gone more than a day or two at a time, you basically haul regular routes between distribution centers and vendors. It is much easier to maintain a family life.

• Local – Skill and patience are virtues you’ll need to get around in city traffic and manage tight spaces for loading/unloading. However, if you just really appreciate being home every night this may be a perfect choice.

Non-Trucking – Several options are available for someone with a Class A CDL license that doesn’t involve moving products from place to place. Other choices include bus driver, highway maintenance technician, engineering/construction equipment operator, tractor-trailer technician, terminal manager, or delivery driver.
