Company drivers, unlike owner operators, have the option to work a local, regional, or over-the-road run. Large truck driving companies may provide the freedom to switch the type of driving run, if desired. For example, if a driver has been doing local runs for a few years but desires to go over-the-road; that driver just needs to apply for the position, no need for getting a company driving job elsewhere. Truck driving jobs offer great benefits for not only yourself but also your family such as: 401K, paid vacations, notable insurance, and a certain level of job freedom.
