The World of OTR Trucking
The World of OTR Trucking

The trucking world offers many different options for trucking with many different sizes of trucks carrying many different types of loads. Here at Armada Trucking, we feature over-the-road truck driving jobs, also called OTR trucking.

There are advantages and disadvantages to OTR trucking. We’re here to help you decide whether this is the best trucking job for you.

What is OTR Trucking

If you’re familiar with the term, you know that over-the-road truck driving usually requires you to be away for weeks to months.

OTR trucking is excellent if you like getting away for more extended periods. Someone who does not have a family yet is probably a better candidate than those who do. Still, if you are looking for a different career path, it might be your thing anyway.

In OTR trucking, being on the long runs can be taken as quite an adventure – you get to see different things, meet new people and build some exciting memories.

OTR Trucking at Armada Trucking Group

If over-the-road trucking sounds cool, but the months on the road don’t, there are other companies, such as Armada Trucking Group, where we don’t put our drivers on the street for more than 2 to 5 days in a row.

This work method allows you to experience the over-the-road truck driving jobs and the adventure associated with them without being on the road for such a long period.

When engaged with over-the-road truck driving jobs, you obviously have to reach your destination first. There, you either wait for your load to be unloaded or unloaded it yourself. After that, you have to wait for the new shipment to be attached before taking off to your next destination.

Drop and Hook with OTR Trucking

Waiting may not be a big deal for most, but it might be a nuisance to others since it takes extra time. At Armada, we operate with drop and hook trucking.

Drop and hook trucking means you arrive at your destination, drop your cargo, and hook a new one right away. Often this involves little interaction with others and makes for much faster delivery.

If you had some misconceptions about over-the-road truck driving jobs, know that there are always other options. Explore drop and hook trucking with Armada Trucking Group, or sign up for a classic OTR trucking today!
