Ohio Owner Operator Jobs

TS-image-200352744Thanks to its central location and historical heavy industrial economic base, Ohio has portions of 21 interstate highways which add up to a little over 1,572 miles. Interstates 80 and 90 run concurrently across part of the state, so there are actually more miles in the system. Ohio’s interstates had the third highest number of trucks using the interstates in the country.

Truck drivers who are members of the Ohio Trucking Association are eligible to participate in a new joint program with the Highway Patrol. The Truck Shield program trains drivers to spot and report suspicious activity like possible drunk drivers or human trafficking. The Patrol hopes the program will help stop dangerous situations more quickly.

Congestion is a problem around Ohio’s cities. One study found that 37 percent of Ohio's urban roadways were congested. The traffic jams in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus are especially bad during the morning and afternoon commutes. As the economy continues to improve, traffic backups are expected to worsen around all of Ohio's major cities.

The discovery of major oil and natural gas deposits in Eastern Ohio will also add to increased traffic on Ohio roadways. The Marcellus and Utica Shale finds will spur massive job opportunities for the owner operator in Ohio. With dozens of well permits issued, the area will need lots of drivers to haul sand, water and equipment.

Special hauling permits are available through the state or authorized private permit dealers. The private services will add their own fee in addition to the state's fees. An OS-8 insurance liability form must be submitted to the state before a permit can be issued. The form must be filled out by the insurance company. For self-insured operators, a Surety Bond form must be on file.

The approved route for a special load will be assigned by the state. The route requested may be different than the authorized route. Two private pilot vehicles are required. If noted on the permit, a Highway Patrol unit can be substituted for one private escort car if an officer is available.That means many opportunities for you whether you prefer to stay local in the state or you want an over the road job transporting goods and products to all the states in the continental US.
