Regardless of whether you want a local, regional, or OTR job, you have a good chance of finding your next truck driving job in North Carolina.

Regional and OTR jobs give you the chance to drive to other states in the country.

 Being flexible with your routes can help you explore a number of different jobs. In fact, North Carolina ships to many different states, primarily South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Tennessee (Bureau of Transportation Statistics, 2015). Natural materials are some of the biggest exports in North Carolina, with trucks often transporting loads of gravel, unprocessed wood, minerals, and natural sands.
 
It can be very helpful to learn about the trucking industry of your state from people who had spent years building their careers there. That’s why it may be helpful to join the North Carolina Trucking Association and network with some of the drivers and owners in your area.
