Regional, OTR, or Vocational Trucking: What’s Right for You

Truck driving is a popular occupation and it’s important to weigh your options and find what the best fit is for you. There are three main types of trucking:

  1. REGIONAL – This typically involves day trips – often a maximum of one or two nights out. A driver may run areas anywhere from a few city/counties to a few states.
  2. OVER THE ROAD (OTR) – A long-haul otr driver can spend weeks at a time on the road, with coast-to-coast loads.
  3. VOCATIONAL – Vocational drives take care of specific jobs or tasks. This category includes anywhere from dump trucks, end-dumps & side-dumps, belly dumps, refuse (garbage trucks and roll-offs), concrete trucks, service trucks, rail trucks- and the list goes on. These types of rigs are often found in construction sites, oil fields, landfills, and more.
