Posted by Genie Wood on Tue, Jun 26, 2012 @ 09:28 AM

The trucking industry is in need of professional "big rig" truck drivers to haul freight throughout the United States. It is estimated that by the end of next year, there will be approximately 300,000 job openings in the trucking industry.



Truck drivers are responsible for transporting roughly 70 percent of all freight in the United States. An individual has to obtain a commercial driver's license in order to be able to work in the trucking industry.



The ability to earn a decent living is present with the position of a "big rig" trucker. Individuals already in the industry claim that you have to move up in the rankings, but that their jobs are important to the overall flow of the economy, and they enjoy what they do.



Freight factoring is also an important part of working in the trucking industry. If you have questions regarding truck factoring, please contact TBS Factoring by calling 800-207-7661 today.
