Smart Trucking: Expose Yourself To Minimal Risk
Posted By:  Brant Osborne
Friday, January 18, 2019

It’s always considered smart to start out doing something new, by exposing yourself to the least amount of risk especially in the start of your career. Are you aware of the fact that almost as high as 95% of the people who attempt to break into a new trucking career never make it to their one year anniversary? It makes the profession sound like there is a high risk factor there. But the idea is to understand smart trucking. This is not a career choice to take lightly. It takes some serious commitment, the proper approach here is so that you end up with successful results and don’t get demotivated from the high intensity parts of the job.

It takes a considerable amount of time to become proficient at trucking. New drivers tend to focus on the physical aspects of their job, things like double clutching, floating gears, and backing a truck properly so that you can line it up with a loading dock these things are new to them therefore are their prime focus. These are the things that trouble a rookie almost on a regular basis. They soon get past those issues rather quickly and then they realize that they usually have much bigger fish to fry in this career.

This is mostly where working with a large national carrier usually tends to help you immensely that is if you know how to approach the situation and declare your status. Almost all these big companies tend to have more than the resources to help you continue to learn and develop your career. The company therefore ensures you develop into something worthwhile for them as they continue to work on you as well as with you. Things like time management and trip planning begin to come into your focus as you begin to realize their important role in your strategy for success as a professional truck driver.

Advantages of breaking into a large company

Another advantage of getting started at a large carrier is that they tend to offer you many options to you regarding your career. If you are pursuing success in your new career you need as many of these options as possible to better assess what would suit your needs best. If you have started your career out at a large national carrier, who has multiple divisions all over the country, you can easily move from one driving discipline to another or from one state to another.
