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 match empty beds with the best loads, staying on top of regulatory requirements, time away from home, sore keesters.

But even with all that, truckers 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.

Welcome to LTL.com

Trucking can be a tough life but we all know tricks for making it better, and that’s what the new LTL.com is here for: to be an online community where like-minded truckers can share ideas and learn better ways to work.
