If you’ve been waiting for the right time to jump into the trucking industry and make a career for yourself, now is the time to act. This industry is growing all over the country, which means that the nation as a whole relies more on Midwestern states like Nebraska. Nebraska companies, listed below, are struggling to fill all of their open positions.

No matter which type of job you’re interested in, you may be able to find a Nebraska company that suits you. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics notes that the main export states for Nebraska are Washington, Colorado, and California. However, the state also has closer trade partners like Iowa and Kansas. Cereal grains, gravel, and animal feed are just some of the goods that are sent out of Nebraska by the truckload.

Meeting other drivers and company owners can help you become involved in the truck driving community. You may wish to attend networking and training events put on by groups like the Nebraska Trucking Association.
