The transportation industry is continuing to grow and offers different career opportunities for all levels! It was fantastic to see that the transportation sector got well-deserved attention during the height of the pandemic because they were essential during lockdown! Are you interested in a career in the truck driving sector? Let’s explore your options!
Truck Driving Careers:
To drive certain commercial motor vehicles in the United States, the federal government requires drivers to possess a commercial driver’s license (CDL). These licenses, however, are not all created equal. The different types of CDL classifications are Class A, Class B, and Class C.
Each CDL classification is distinguished by the vehicle’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), among other items. Note, depending on the CDL classification you apply for will strictly determine the type of vehicle you are allowed to drive and which endorsements you may be required to obtain. For more information on how to get your CDL license, click here.
Also known as a courier, a delivery driver picks up and drops off goods. A pizza delivery person could be considered a delivery driver, but for Spectra360, we hire delivery drivers within the logistics sector.
This could be the perfect job for a job seeker who doesn’t like sitting at a desk for 8 hours! As a delivery driver, you’ll be able to get a change of scenery while making deliveries and even get the opportunity to interact with customers!
