Truck driving companies are those whose whole business is moving freight by truck, as opposed to a company like Wal-Mart, which has many truck driving jobs, but its primary business is retail sales. The advantage to working for a truck driving company is that your job function is the main focus of the organization, and most people in the organization should understand the challenges of hauling freight. Truck driving companies can offer you diversity of routes and types of freight.
According to SJ Consulting Group, the following are some of the top revenue-earning freight organizations in the US.
Of these companies, only FedEx was ranked as one of “Fortune” Magazine’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” in 2016. FedEx was ranked #8 in 2016. This is the 16th consecutive year that FedEx has ranked among the top 20, with 13 of those years ranking among the top 10.
Just because a company makes a lot of money or is well-rated by a national publication doesn’t mean you will be happy there. Once you get behind the wheel, you can begin figuring out which job priorities matter most to you: more miles, better pay, better home time, better fleet, work environment or more interesting destinations. Start talking to other drivers and you will get an idea of which companies have an environment that can keep you happy in the long term. Take your time doing research and make sure job two is the right one.
