Job Outlook for OTR Truck Drivers
Also known as long-haul and over the road drivers, OTR truck drivers perform jobs that can either require a few hundred miles of road per day or that can keep them behind the wheel from two to five weeks at a time. OTR drivers transport goods from one location to another by operating heavy equipment with a gross vehicle weight of 26,000 lbs or more.
Hiring outlook: 5% employment growth through 2024; approximately 98,800 jobs created in that time. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median pay for heavy all drivers across all sectors in 2014 was $39,520. The trucking industry as a whole has the challenge of figuring out ways to attract new talent to the trucking industry due to the growing driver shortage. Veteran drivers are on their way out of the industry and the new group of truck drivers needs brought in and trained up to take their place.
If you live in Wisconsin or Northern Illinois and are seeking employment and have a CDL Class A driver’s license, now is the ideal time to look into the job opportunities at Service One Transportation earning $69,000 or more per year.
