Are you looking for a job that provides great pay and gives you the opportunity to travel the open road? Truck driving might be the ideal gig for you if you’re 21 or older. If you’re under the impression that truck drivers don’t make much money, you’re in for a surprise. Here are a few truck driver benefits you can experience if you become a driver:
Contrary to popular belief, truck drivers make good pay. In fact, first-year drivers can potentially make up to $70,000 per year, while seasoned drivers can make up to $90,000 or more per year. Why worry about going back to school and getting a degree when you can make that much money driving a semi-truck?
There aren’t a lot of people who decide to become truck drivers, partially because there’s a pervasive myth that it’s a low-paying job. As you’ve already seen, that simply isn’t true. However, because there’s typically a shortage of good CDL truck drivers, they are generally in high demand. That means you have a good chance of landing a job once you receive your Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL).
To help drivers become as efficient as possible (and make more money in the process), tools have been developed to make the job easier. One of these tools is the DSL Mobile app just released by Duncan & Son Lines, Inc. The slogan for the app is “On Driver Terms” because it’s been customized for Duncan drivers. It helps in a number of ways, including the following:
- Contains paperwork drivers need, including Bill of Lading documents
- Gives drivers dispatch choices and does away with forced dispatch
- Drivers can load the information they need on the app in a matter of seconds
The DSL Mobile app makes the trucking business even more lucrative for drivers and helps them stay in the loop. Gone are the days when drivers were treated poorly by trucking companies. Now, truck drivers have more tools, options, and opportunities to make good money.
People pay good money to travel the nation and see new places, but you get paid to do it when you’re a truck driver. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to meet new people and see a variety of landscapes when you drive for a living. At Duncan and Son Lines we offer local and regional CDL jobs giving our drivers a chance to travel while still being close to home.
