Transportation Employment Information
Transportation Industry Overview
More than 8.6 million Americans work in transportation jobs, including more than 3 million truck drivers who move raw materials and finished goods around the nation. Long-haul truck driver is the most common job in transportation. Tractor-trailer drivers work in tandem with route planners, traffic dispatchers and traffic managers. Delivery truck drivers distribute cargo in a limited area.
Transportation Job Types
Long-haul truck drivers transport goods between cities and states, typically in trucks weighing more than 26,000 pounds. Self-employed tractor-trailer drivers are called owner-operators.
Delivery truck drivers and driver/sales workers deliver merchandise to stores or customers’ homes typically in one region or urban area. They drive trucks of 26,000 pounds or less.
Traffic dispatchers organize where truck drivers go. They stay in touch with the drivers, give them assignments, share traffic information and maintain tracking logs.
Traffic managers analyze data, work with vendors and set policies to help their companies efficiently deliver goods and maximize profits.
Transportation Education and Certifications
To get a delivery truck driver job or driver/sales job, you’ll need a high school diploma or GED, plus on-the-job training. To advance and find transportation job opportunities as a long-haul tractor-trailer driver, you’ll need a few years of related driving experience as well.
Pursuing a transportation career as a traffic manager requires a bachelor’s degree, but some companies will hire someone with an associate’s degree and several years of experience.
States have special license requirements or tests for truck drivers whose jobs involve hazardous material, tankers, and double- or triple-trailer trucks.
