Frequently Asked Questions on Solo Trucking
What is solo trucking?
Solo trucking is a type of truck driving job where a single truck driver operates a commercial vehicle independently. Done without a co-driver or team member, Solo trucking refers to a type of truck driving job where a single truck driver operates a commercial vehicle independently, without a co-driver or team member. In solo trucking, the driver is solely responsible for all aspects of the trip, including driving, navigation, vehicle maintenance, and compliance with transportation regulations. This mode of trucking offers drivers a high degree of independence and control over their journeys.
Is it better to drive solo or team?
The choice between solo and team truck driving depends on a person’s preferences and career goals. Solo truck driving offers greater independence and control over one's schedule but may lead to extended periods of solitude on the road. Team truck driving on the other hand can provide shared responsibilities, faster deliveries, and companionship but may require coordination and compromise with a co-driver.
