Hot Shot Trucking Jobs

Hot Shot Trucking Jobs

Hot shot trucking jobs involve transporting cargo that is generally smaller and rushed. Truckers drive smaller trucks than the standard semi-truck and trailer. In the oil, gas and energy industries, fast and reliable hot shot trucking services are invaluable. Hot shot jobs vary and depend on the type of rig you operate. Items hauled are of all shapes and sizes, and may include urgently needed parts, fresh produce, or something as small as one envelope.

Unlike hauling conventional cargo that can be regularly scheduled, hot shot trucking jobs often haul cargo that is time sensitive in nature, so hot shot driver’s must be ready to go at a moment’s notice. Truck drivers must be skilled and flexible and ready to haul thousands of pounds in cargo one day, and a small package the next. Hotshotters are locally or regionally based and acquire hot shot jobs by creating relationships with local shippers and good customer service focused on availability and speed.

Hot shot trucking jobs are hard to come by and are typically best for experienced truck drivers. To get started in this career field, we would suggest at least three years of experience as a solo driver. If you are looking for a hot shot trucking job in the oil, gas or energy industries, tanker truck driving jobs would be the perfect place to start.
