With a local trucking job, you operate within a smaller, designated region. You’re out driving for a set period of time, and home for a set number of days, depending on the trucking company you work for.
Benefits of local trucking jobs
Local truck driving jobs may take you to other states in your area, but you don’t have to take long hauls that keep you away from home for long periods of time, which is a benefit if you have a family at home. Local trucking jobs allow for a more consistent schedule.
With local trucking, you’re able to develop a closer relationship with the people you deliver to since you’ll deliver to the same places. You’ll learn your routes, so you know when and where to avoid delays in traffic and/or delivery delays to your customer drop off points.
What to look for in a local trucking job?
There are things to consider when looking for a local trucking job. A strong compensation package is certainly a bonus, as are other benefits such as health insurance, paid time off and retirement packages.
The company culture is another factor to consider. What are the company values? Is the management accessible and receptive if you have concerns? Is employee feedback encouraged and valued?
