Find Team Truck Driving Jobs Posted by the Best Carriers in the US
The demand for team truck driving jobs in the industry is soaring. In order to safely make long treks across the country in a timely manner, a driving partner helps make this happen. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Hours of Service of Drivers Final Rule limits drivers to 11 hours of daily driving time during a maximum 14-hour workday. Team driver jobs allow truckers to alternate driving shifts to ensure they are in compliance with FMCSA regulations. Following a long shift, each driver must have ten hours off duty. Your off hours are a prime time to get caught up on precious z’s and clean up. As a team, a major benefit is that you and your trucking partner are given first priority over loads. You will be doing over the road driving, meaning you will be driving an average of 1000 miles per day. There are a lot of rewards that come along with team driver jobs, such as:
Having the companionship of another driver abating loneliness.
Learning from your co-driver, even when they make mistakes.
You and your partner can cover more miles and keep the truck moving 24/7.
Never run out of hours because you can always trade off driving duties when needed
