The Different Truck Delivery Jobs
C&M Transport serves a wide range of customers. Regardless of the client and their sector of business, we are always dedicated to exceeding their expectation and providing maximum satisfaction. That requires our drivers to complete different trucking jobs, often using specialized equipment. We hire drivers for everything from long hauls to short hauls to sprinter van deliveries.
Long Haul Trucking
Given our reach and how broad our network is, drivers are asked to complete long-haul distances. Long-haul trucking jobs usually entail driving larger trucks with heavier loads across long distances.
The exact distance of a long haul varies depending on the client but typically involves a 250-mile or more radius from the truck’s origin. Drivers performing longer hauls can drive hundreds of thousands of miles per year, often between cities, states, or even across the country. Because of this, routes are generally highways instead of city roads.
Short Haul Trucking
Short haul trucking, or local trucking, involves drivers transporting goods much shorter distances than compared to long hauls, although they are equally as important. During local hauls, drivers typically drive smaller trucks that operate better on city roads. Route distances vary but usually stay within a 150-mile radius of the truck’s origin.
When completing a short-haul trucking job, drivers are responsible for transporting various items, such as materials to construction sites, retail products from fulfillment centers, or perishable items to grocery stores.
Sprinter Van Deliveries
For jobs that focus on transporting smaller cargo to local destinations, drivers utilize sprinter van deliveries. Despite the name, these deliveries may be carried out by other light commercial vehicles in addition to sprinter vans.
Types of cargo vary based on the client’s needs. As a sprinter van driver, you make deliveries for one company or several. Because this type of service focuses on timely deliveries, all sprinter van drivers are responsible for navigating between destinations, taking the most efficient routes possible.
The Advantages of Driving for C&M Transport
While we are committed to serving our clients and meetings their needs, C&M Transport is also a driver’s company at heart. We are an established trucking company managed by individuals who began their careers as drivers on the road. This unique perspective provides us with deep insight into what life on the road is like for our drivers. Understanding the critical role our divers have in the success of our operations, we strive to make C&M Transport one of the best trucking companies to work for.
We are pleased to offer our drivers several desirable advantages, including:
Few Deadhead Miles
Not every time a driver gets behind the wheel is he or she transporting cargo. In some cases, they are driving with an empty load, either on their way to pick up cargo or leaving a destination after dropping it off. These times are referred to as deadhead miles and many drivers hope to avoid them.
At C&M Transport, we are pleased to offer drivers the fewest deadhead miles in the industry. We make it a point to strategically route drivers for picks ups and deliveries to limit their deadhead miles as much as possible.
Driver Expenses Taken Care Of By Us
When driving as an independent contractor, paying for every expense rests on your shoulders. Any unexpected maintenance cost or equipment failure comes out of the independent contractor’s pocket.
Our drivers don’t have to worry about that. We pay for our driver’s expenses, including diesel fuel, maintenance and repair costs, permit fees, and others. This enables drivers to focus more on the road, their safety, and the safety of others.
Access to Dispatch Whenever Needed
C&M Transport never wants our drivers to feel alone on the road. Because hauls can require long days and even longer nights, dispatch is available 24/7. Drivers can find support at any hour of any day of the week.
