About LTL

The freedom of the open road, being on the move, seeing the country, new horizons each morning – there are plenty of reasons to love being a trucker.

And there’s plenty that makes it challenging too – trying to find a profitable back haul, staying on top of a mountain of regulatory requirements, bad food, time away from home and family, sore keesters.

But even with all that, today’s professional truck drivers keep at it. And America is lucky they do. Because without them, nothing gets manufactured, store shelves are empty, the economy skids to a stop.

For every mechanical, regulatory or logistical problem, there’s a driver, dispatcher, broker, carrier, shipper out there who’s been through it and figured it out. If you’ve figured it out, pass it on. If you’re figuring it out, share your thoughts.
