TruckersReport is the fastest way to find truck driving jobs. It only takes 30 seconds to fill out an application form and receive offers from the best trucking companies. Whether you’re looking for a company that offers better pay, newer equipment, or more home time, you can upgrade your career in minutes.
Better Paying Jobs
The road to the highest paying trucking jobs isn’t always a straight line. You may start at a company that hires drivers fresh out of trucking school or provides free CDL training, but later in your career it often makes sense to seek out companies that hire experienced truckers. Switching from dry van to a more specialized category of equipment, such as flatbed, refrigerated, or tankers, will also lead to more earning opportunities. Owner Operator and Lease Purchase jobs are also an option, but they are risky.
Our job board includes filters so that drivers with specific standards can quickly finds jobs that meet their requirements, such as Hazmat, Oilfield, and military friendly employers that hire veterans. Free job posting means a steady flow of new truck driver jobs from trucking companies that don’t post on other sites.
More Home Time
OTR truck driver jobs usually pay more than local trucking jobs, but it’s tough to put a price on spending time with family. Driving regional or a dedicated lane can often mean getting home on the weekends, which is a good compromise for truckers who want to spend more time with family without limiting their earnings.
I am a 'system' driver living 200 miles from my home terminal so I knew going in that I would be out two weeks at a time. There was no sugar coating it. In fact, when I mentioned I lived close to a major interstate and could probably get by the house a little more often, the recruiter said probably not. No one tells you what you want to hear, just what you need to hear. But they get you home when promised and pay you the out-of-route miles when you do go home. The pay is very good for this industry and the benefits, while not the greatest, sure aren't the worse either. I am on track to make 75-80,000 dollars this, my first full calendar year. Some of the equipment is older, especially the trailer fleet, but tank trailers are very expensive so a company will run them as long as safely possible. I have never had a trailer issue on the road other than a couple tires and my tractor went down one time due to the DEF system sensor- and I have had a truck with less than 25,000 miles go down for that.
Good mileage pay (50 cpm to start), 98% drop and hook for a clean trailer for next load, $20 an hour for detention after 2 hours and the same for breakdown pay, steady work- no sitting (and if you do end up sitting there's $100 for hold-over pay)
Not much here. Some older trailers and you'll start in an older (3-4 yr. old truck). I started 1 1/2 years ago and will be in line for a new truck in the spring of 2018. If you do have to use a spare truck while yours gets worked on it will not be the best but at least you can keep working.
Landstar is a company that hires owner operators. They are not there to hold your hand, but give you access to the resources available to run a profitable business if you need them. It was a step in between company driver and running my own numbers. After 2 years, I'm glad I chose them, and they offer the flexibility I need. Don't consider them if you don't know how to run a business, maintain equipment, abide by the standard industry regulations, have a bad driving record, or are looking for someone to blame for your own failures. If you have good personal skills and a desire to steer your own ship - from a solid financial stance, then they're a great fit.
Flexibilty. Freedom. Availability of multitudes of different freight. Left alone to operate if compliant.
Cut and paste pyjama agents, unregulated by Landstar. Bloated departments and staff, confusing structure. Nitpicky charges that have to be ignored, or they'll drive you nuts - basically make more revenue and they won't irritate you so much.
