    Your right P&d is another route to go that might be a lil less hardcore on the body and can help you get into shape. When I was at Reddaway we had a big guy lose weight doing the same job.

    People that get scared of Foodservice are the same people who think parking at the back of the Truckstop and walking to the store is plenty of exercise.

    It all depends on job availability too. Generally Foodservice hires in all areas and the company needs bodies and looks past experience to where LTL P&d job is pretty covenant especially with the popularity over the years might be hard to come by in the OP’s area. My area you can land a LTL P&d job pretty easily out the gate but his area might be different. I would try LTL P&d first if you can.

    Kinda everywhere
    Same thing for my area. You can land a P&D gig right our the gate. We are hiring on 5 new drivers that just got out of CDL school. Elsewhere, there are more drivers than jobs so it's far more competitive.

    Here is a much better idea. For the next 3 years, have a qualified athletic coach help you to get into the best shape of your life.
    Afterwards, go to a good truck driving school, then apply for food service or soda delivery, (Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7-Up). These LTL jobs are full time & all year around. They will also continue to keep you in shape.
    2) Also, dairy delivery as Hiland Dairy, Oak Farms Dairy, Hood, Sealtest, Borden's, etc., deliver crates of milk to both warehouses and retail stores, (supermarkets, Walmart, Sam's Club, etc.). These LTL jobs will also keep you in shape.

    God bless every American and their families! God bless the U.S.A.!

    Around my way pepsi will train you to get your cdl while you work only thing is is the got rid of all their 6 speeds so you have an automatic restriction on your license. I went to a tech school for mine though.
