Truck drivers are a vital element of our economy. You see them everywhere when you drive on our interstate systems or even the side roads of most towns and cities. Our nation and economy depends on this industry to deliver the goods and products that we need to keep our economy producing and productive. The US Department of Transportation or DOT governs and regulates trucking activities in our country. Most individual states also have Departments of Transportation.
Depending on the type of trucking job you desire, hours of work are governed as well as working conditions. DOT governs the interstate long distance drivers and companies. A long distance driver can drive for eleven hours and may work up to fourteen hours, after having ten off duty hours. There are other requirements for hours worked in the last 7 or 8 days, etc. Some truckers have to unload their own trucks while others just have to deliver the goods.
The types and degrees of trucking varies tremendously.
You have local light weight delivery or long distance heavy truck and
trailer drivers. Depending on your wants and needs, the right
truck driving job awaits you today.
