Post by: K&J Trucking

The ELD mandate has been all over the news in the last week, but if you've been following our blog you know that the ELD mandate is only one of the regulatory issues facing drivers.

Post by: K&J Trucking

Richard Clifford always knew the ins and outs of trucking. You could say that trucking runs in his blood. Richard's dad, uncle, grandfather and several aunts are all involved in trucking in some way. So it wasn't a surprise to Richard's family when he took up the "family business" and went for his CDL at the young age of 22. "I knew I could make good money in this career," Richard said, "There is great opportunity to grow and the job is always needed."

Trucking Jobs Don't Have to Equal Bad Health July 7 2016

Post by: Brenda Boese

It isn’t a secret. Trucking jobs don’t lend themselves to good health. And it makes sense; if you sit in a chair for most of the day and aren't always home to make your own food, staying healthy is going to be more difficult. You might think that focusing on your health is a luxury, but you can’t afford to ignore your health. No one wants to get sidelined as a trucker. Time off the road means no money coming in. Focus on your health now, before problems arise. It takes forethought, but it isn’t impossible!
