Ohio Trucking Jobs

Job seekers in Ohio can find a job quickly by looking into a career in trucking. A job as a truck driver in Ohio is one that will always be in demand and pays well since trucks are still the best way to transport goods across the nation.

Salary and Job Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the field of trucking is expected to grow faster than average between 2010 and 2020.

A job as a truck driver has many benefits other than pay. Jobs in trucking are available in every state across the nation. Most truck drivers are home during the week and enjoy benefits if they are not an owner operator. Those who thrive as a truck driver often enjoy the independent nature of the job as well as the ability to choose a variety of different jobs that a Commercial Driver's License (CDL) can bring. Drivers who want to pursue specialized driving, like hazardous materials, rush shipping, or extended over-the-road driving can expect to be paid well. Trucking experience can also be used to springboard into other fields like automotive or diesel mechanics or a military career. And the best part about truck driving is that it only takes a few weeks to obtain a CDL license and many trucking companies will both pay for the education and guarantee a job after graduation.

Laws and Regulations

Regulations for truck drivers in Ohio generally conform to federal standards. Truck drivers in Ohio must be at least 18 years old and have a clean driving record, including no instances of driving under the influence or leaving the scene of an accident. A CDL is only required under certain circumstances in Ohio; the requirement is based on the size of the trailer and the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). All federal CDL regulations, such as no cell phone use, bi-annual medical exams, and drug testing also apply to truck drivers in Ohio. CDL holders can only have one state-issued CDL at a time and are required to pass a driving and written test which covers driving safety as well as truck preventative maintenance. Despite the regulations, a truck driving job in Ohio is a way to quickly obtain a well-paying career without a high financial investment or the risk of not being able to find work after graduation.

There are over 62,000 drivers working in the state.  Drivers earn slightly under $40,000 per year on average, but that number greatly depends on the type of freght and experience level of the driver.  Data from BLS.gov.
