April 10, 2017Common Misconceptions About Trucking Companies
There seems to be some negative stigma surrounding trucking companies and what they actually want. We are going to try and debunk some of these stigmas and figure out where they come from and how we are trying to change them.
Trucking Companies are Always Hiring
When researching trucking companies, visiting their websites, following their social media, it seems like most of these are always hiring.
So if they offer so much job security and all that other mumbo jumbo, why does it seem like they can’t keep their seats filled? The truth is, there is no single reason.
Each company functions differently, and while many companies rotate drivers often, others are constantly expanding, adding routes, customers, more trucks, etc.
The more trucks we have, the more people we can have, and the more people we have, the more trucks we can get! It shouldn’t be much more difficult than that.
Trucking and Time Away
Let’s face it. The industry has come a long way in recent years, and organization and planning companies are able to execute effective routes which enable the driver to spend time on the road as well as at home with his family.
There are multiple ports to load and unload, so what used to be seven days on the road for multiple weeks is now 2-5. You choose!
Trucking and Health
Some people say: “I’m going to become fat and immobile from sitting down for so long.” Well, yes, you are if you want to. But if you don’t want to, there are on-the-road recipes, meal preparations, and exercises you can do to keep your body in shape, and there is stuff for mind too. We’ll be sharing some here, so stick around!
All in all, being a truck driver isn’t for everyone but can be very rewarding. People need stuff, and trucks deliver stuff. Trucks need people to drive them.
