The information below provides an overview of how working as a corporate driver can meet your expected lifestyle, fit into your long-term career plans, and provide the work environment you search.
What is a business driver?
Company drivers are employed by specific companies that maintain their own fleet of trucks. Company drivers can be separated into 2 categories: (1) drivers working for road carriers that exist for the sole purpose of transporting the freight of others, or (2) drivers working for companies that transport their own freight to support the product of its own business or service. Company drivers are in high demand, especially among large carriers.
What personal characteristics are useful for company drivers?
In addition to the personal characteristics necessary to be a successful truck driver, a corporate driver can represent a company with thousands of workers in the United States and around the world. Therefore, it is helpful for a corporate driver to maintain a happy and helpful demeanor towards both the general public and customers. Likewise, reliability, honesty, integrity, and self-motivation are necessary, as no one will be looking over your shoulder or directing your every move. No one will tell you when to get out of bed in the morning or when to take a break or stop driving for the day (except the NMCSA, of course!).
