Truck Driving Jobs in Connecticut

Every day in the lovely New England state of Connecticut, trucks zip along the highways and surface streets bringing all of the products and goods needed by the people who call the state home. Nearly everything you see on a store shelf is delivered by a truck.

Connecticut trucking companies can take advantage of the excellent highways as they navigate through this small, but upscale state. Whether goods need to be delivered in the big city of Hartford or out to the wealthy suburbs like Greenwich or Westport, Connecticut trucking companies are equipped to handle the challenge. 

The truck driving industry in Connecticut has been strong for many years, but a recent development has improved the industry even more. Connecticut truck drivers recently enjoyed a diesel tax break of 4.2 cents (The CT Mirror, 2016).
