    Just curious which trucking jobs are getting hit the hardest with what's going on right now and which trucking jobs aren't really affected

    I drive for a local propane company and I'm still getting full time hours. Not bragging or anyting I'm just thankful I'm still getting a paycheck during these hard times.

    I haul machinery and I'm still busy. Everything is subject to change, though

    I have the same problem I have had since I started in the business decades ago. More Freight than drivers. Will this last ? We will see.

    I imagine car-haulers are pretty slow with all of the manufacturers shutdown.
