Flatbed Truck Driving Jobs

Flatbed truck driving jobs are quite different than dry van or tanker positions. Flatbed trailers have no walls and loads require strapping, chaining, and tarps. Hauling a flatbed trailer can be extremely hazardous due to the weight and products that they deliver. Weight distribution and load securement are the most important safety skills that flatbed truck drivers will have to master. The consequences for cutting corners or slight miscalculations can be disastrous.

On the other hand, there is a bright side to flatbed trucking. With flatbed, companies typically offer better home time due to the physical nature of the job. Plus, a majority of flatbed companies pay by the percentage of the load. This means a driver who can effectively manage his or her time can increase their weekly earnings driving for a reputable flatbed trucking company. Flatbed truck services are used across many different industries such as: construction, aerospace, renewable energy, steel, industrial, oil / gas, military, and more. Some common items hauled by flatbed include: construction equipment, steel coils, steel tubing and pipe, lumber, pallets, glass, turbines, military equipment, and more!

Some flatbed positions require specialized training, but this is generally provided by the company.
