What is Local truck driving?

Local truck drivers haul freight within a day’s drive of home, meaning you can get back home every day. These jobs are typically available in more urban environments with a robust customer base close by. You’ll master driving in the area you live in, delivering multiple loads or at least making multiple stops every day. It’s a great way to add variety to your work day. See what’s available near you.
