Intrastate

A local truck driver typically travels within the state where he or she lives and can expect to be home nightly. Many local truck driving jobs may involve lifting and more strenuous physical activity. Loading and unloading may be a primary responsibility when making deliveries to stores and other area businesses. As a local truck driver, an individual may also be required to interact more with customers on a regular basis, so professionalism and appearance are often more important than with other route options available in the trucking industry.

Local driving positions may be difficult to land as a new, more inexperienced driver because of concerns surrounding insurance. In addition, many drivers who have families and like to be home nightly seek out local driving jobs. Because many drivers feel being home nightly has its appeal, local truck driver jobs can be very difficult to acquire. Typically there will be a lot more competition when searching for local positions although this varies from city to city and state to state. Many drivers settle for a regional trucking job which is an alternative that can provide a good amount of home time.
