OTR DRIVING JOBS
A long-distance driver, also called a long-haul or over-the-road driver, drives heavy trucks. Depending on the circumstances, you might be given the opportunity to come home the same day or take a layover until the following day. Additionally, you may travel to farther locations, and be away from home base for a week or more.
LOCAL TRUCKING JOBS
You’ll drive light, medium, and heavy trucks and complete pick-up and delivery duties, route sales, and customer deliveries.
This type of truck driver uses equipment designed for unique commodities in specialized trucking operations, both long distance and local. Examples include double and triple trailers, auto carriers, dry bulk and liquid bulk carriers, tankers, and very heavy machinery.
The special characteristics of the loads these drivers are hauling have to be known for these drivers to properly handle them. They should also know what to do if there is an emergency, such as leakage of containers. These drivers are usually provided more intensive training by their employers.
