Regional Trucking Jobs
Regional trucking jobs are desirable to individuals interested in the option of more regular home time. These may include truckers who are married or have children.
Regional trucking jobs cover certain regions inside a state or specific regions of the country. Most companies allow their drivers to select the region they would like to drive; typically the route is within 1,000 miles from the driver’s home. This means regional drivers are never more than a day of driving away from home and can frequently schedule time there.
On an average regional route, drivers are on the road between 7- 10 days at a time. However, there are many definitions of regional and time on the road can vary from company to company. In addition, freight varies from day to day, keeping the job interesting. The pay for regional trucking jobs is comparable to over-the-road trucking jobs.
