How important is trucking in North Carolina? Consider the fact that 12.4 out of every 1,000 workers in the state drive a truck for a living.
Historic North Carolina is well known for its reliance on tobacco and textiles as the major economic driving forces.
But over the last several decades the state has been transformed by a very active industrial sector that has built North Carolina into a hub of technology, biotechnology, finance, engineering, and energy. The economies of metropolitan regions like Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham are among the fastest-growing in the country.
It should be no surprise that North Carolina’s robust economy needs a solid logistics industry to move freight and consumer goods in and out. To that end, there are literally hundreds of smaller trucking companies based in the state. C.R. England has operations in North Carolina as well. A fair number of the state’s 50,000 drivers are associated with us as either company employees or independent contractors.
We offer new and inexperienced drivers an opportunity to train through our driving school partners in North Carolina.
Every driver who completes our training program is automatically eligible for hire by C.R. England as long as our additional hiring requirements are met.
