Undergoing training for a new career is one thing. Actually finding employment is quite another. Fortunately, after training to become a truck driver and then obtaining your CDL, there are literally thousands of employers across hundreds of industries who employ truck drivers. Think of an industry and there will be trucks required somewhere along the way.
Some of the more common areas that new truck drivers should consider include:
- Construction – One of the biggest users of trucks and truck drivers,
- Industry – Manufacturing, retail, and farming all use trucks and truck drivers to deliver their good across the nation,
- Government – All levels of government employ truck drivers in some capacity,
- Transport – Possibly the biggest user of trucks and truck drivers, the private transport companies carry goods on consignment, often inter-state, and in some cases, across international borders,
- Owner-driver – Many truck drivers eventually become owner-drivers. Although this is not an area that many would recommend to new drivers, it is an option. As an owner-driver, you work on consignment, often for large transport companies.
