According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median average salary for truck drivers in May 2020 made an average of $47,130 in base pay and bonuses, with the highest paid drivers earning more than $65,260. Knowing that their business relies heavily on their drivers, transportation companies take good care of them, offering excellent benefits such as medical, vision, and dental insurance, life insurance, paid vacation and holidays, sign-on bonuses, retirement plans, and much more.
Whether you choose to drive local, long distance or cross-region, most trucking companies offer flexible work schedules that help you achieve the work-life balance you are looking for.
You’ll have abundant opportunities to expand your CDL training and skillset by working different kinds of routes, driving different types of trucks, as well as hauling various types of loads.
