What to Expect When Working for Hauling Companies: A Guide for Truckers

Hauling companies and their experienced team of semitruck drivers move more than 70% of all U.S. cargo every year. Joining a hauling company gives you a great opportunity to be a part of this critical logistics network while also opening new doors for your trucking career.

This guide will help you know what to expect when working for oversize hauling companies so you can decide whether it’s the right move for you:

The Basic Job Requirements

Hauling companies transport a variety of goods, from construction materials to consumer products. One day, you might find yourself hauling a refrigerated trailer full of groceries and a flatbed filled with raw building materials the next it could be something different.

If you work with an oversize hauling company like Star Fleet Trucking, you’ll be pulling large loads like manufactured homes or Park Model Trailers.  Oversize hauling offers a great mix of good pay and challenging work, which is sure to keep you busy and engaged while out on the road.

Making the Most of the Long-Haul Lifestyle

Life on the road is different from a typical local trucking job. You’ll cover hundreds of miles in a single day and have an opportunity to explore the country, all while earning a great living and completing important work.

Many truckers enjoy the freedom and independence that come with the job. You won’t be stuck sitting at a desk all day but can instead adjust your schedule in accordance with your needs and the demands of each load. Unless you are hauling oversized loads, you can drive overnight to beat the traffic and sleep during the day or start your mornings bright and early.

Safety is important

Top hauling companies like Star Fleet Trucking value your safety and that of others on the road. You’ll be expected to follow state and federal regulations regarding driving hours, securing your loads, and vehicle maintenance.

Don’t worry. We give you all the tools, training, and resources necessary to meet these requirements so you can stay safe out on the road.

We also believe in using technology to make life easier and more efficient for drivers like you. We use digital logging systems and knowledgeable dispatchers to keep the wheels turning and maximize your earning potential.

Embrace the Culture

The basic job requirements for all hauling companies are relatively similar. However, the culture will make all the difference in determining whether you have a good experience.

Before choosing a company to go work for, make sure they have what you are looking for and take care of their drivers. Star Fleet Trucking leases to owner-operators.  As an owner-operator, you create your own schedule so you can take time off when you want.
