The pandemic has caused numerous shifts in our economy and job market. While many unfortunately lost their jobs, businesses, and sometimes careers due to shut downs and lay-offs, the pandemic inspired some to pivot, and pursue careers with lasting longevity and less potential for lay offs or shut downs. That is why, recently, we have seen rising popularity for OTR trucking jobs that offer a lucrative, secure career for many men and women looking for a fresh start, or solid footing for the beginning of their career. Here are some of the top-reasons why this career is experiencing a surge in popularity, and why you should pursue a career in OTR trucking yourself.

 

The Work is Always There

 

Now more than ever before, our world relies on a robust, complex network of supply chains. Ordering much of our goods online, there is an entire logistical process that must be executed with ultimate efficiency to achieve on-time delivery, quality, and affordability to the customer. The men and women who put themselves behind the wheel to deliver these goods are some of the most relied upon workers in the United States economy, and help keep our shelves stocked throughout the year. Needless to say, there will never not be a need for shipping and logistical professionals.

 

Great Benefits, Great Compensation

 

Even if you did not lose your job, many people experienced pay cuts, and even cuts to their benefits packages. The best OTR trucking companies put great value on their drivers, and offer great opportunities for income advancement, along with comprehensive, affordable benefits programs.

 

Work Around Your Schedule

 

While OTR trucking does require some extended periods of time behind the wheel, many people do not realize how flexible many OTR trucking companies can be with your schedule. Dedicate weeks of time off the road, along with PTO breaks throughout the year. Additionally, the best companies will often plan for you to have ample time at home between long haul runs.
