Veterans and service members make excellent truck drivers. Serving in the military requires discipline, mental and physical stamina, communication skills, and teamwork. All of those skills carry over into trucking.
You’ll be responsible for operating a tractor-trailer safely, communicating with your fleet manager, and delivering freight on time. Your experience with large vehicles has prepared you to be an attentive, safe truck driver.
There are approximately 9 million veterans employed in the U.S. workforce. One in 10 truckers are veterans, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The number of veteran truck drivers is expected to grow as companies seek to recruit those with experience in the armed forces.
Independent research from Omnitracs found that veteran truck drivers are safer than their peers. Veteran drivers run more miles and have fewer accidents than non-veteran drivers.
