When most people think about a truck driving job, they think of over-the-road trucking. They think of being gone for months at a time with little or no home life and of going to new places. Well, that is true for some trucking lifestyles, but not for all.
There are truck driving jobs out there that provide home time once or twice a week, or even daily! C.R. England has quite a few of these different options; you don’t have to go OTR to drive. Have you ever thought about a Dedicated division? What about Regional or Intermodal?
Each of these truck driving options are different and have different benefits. Most of them generally don’t keep you away from home from months at a time. Each division has something unique to offer. So, what are the different divisions that C.R. England offers and what do they mean?
The Dedicated division means just that, you are dedicated. As a Dedicated driver, you carry loads for one customer and one customer only. You are dedicated to that customer. This division of CR England has significantly grown over the last few years and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. With a dedicated trucking job you have predictable miles and more frequent home time opportunities than over the road trucking.
The next type of driving option CR England offers is Regional driving. With the Regional division, you are assigned a specific area, or region, and you do not deviate from that area. Regional trucking specializes in the short-haul market and, like dedicated, generally has more home time opportunities than over-the-road.
The last, but not least, trucking option is Intermodal. Intermodal is a rising star in the trucking industry with more and more carriers jumping on the train every year.
Intermodal trucking means carrying a single container through multiple methods such as train, ship and truck. With CR England’s Intermodal division, drivers transport containers to and from shipping yards and to England customers. Intermodal trucking is different from other divisions in that drivers are able to be home most nights and are usually driving a familiar route.
Having a truck driving job no longer has to mean being away from months at a time. You can enjoy a driving job and still be able to have a meaningful home life as well. CR England is growing and along with it are the opportunities. If OTR trucking doesn’t appeal to you, we have something that will.
