TS-image-200362671

There are many trucking jobs in Alabama. By driving in the south, you can experience southern hospitality at its best and enjoy the warmer weather throughout the year. The only main job experience you need is a CDL, though if you have more experience on the roads or with various aspects of route management or recordkeeping, it can help.

Salary and Career Outlook

By 2020, there will be about 21 percent more jobs available in the trucking field than there is today. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has estimated that this is one of the faster growing career fields around the country.

Currently, there are over 29,000 people who work as professional drivers in the state, which is a higher proportion of many other state in the nation according to overall population.  Average annual wage is around $37,500 per year  according to BLS.gov.  Many employers are looking for different things from their drivers. As such, it is always a good idea to do a little research on companies before filling out a job application to ensure that you are setting up yourself for the best possible job.

Important Laws and Regulations in Alabama

There are various laws that need to be followed in Alabama. Spike tires or safety chains may be required for safety when there are slippery conditions on the roads. This includes for snow as well as rain, which means there are no specific months when these will be required.

It’s also important to note that in Alabama, the federal CDL law does not pre-empt the guest passenger statute, which means that a CDL holder is liable for the death of a guest passenger in the cab of the truck.

You will also need to maintain DOT records, which follows federal guidelines. You cannot work more than 60 hours in a 7-day period or 70 hours in an 8-day period. Your week can reset at any time as long as you have had 34 consecutive hours off-duty.

There are a number of trucking jobs in Alabama. Some have you driving locally or regionally, while others have you driving over the road (OTR) out of state. Regardless of the job you choose to apply for, determine what the benefits are and if it’s the right industry for you.
