Working Conditions: Truck driving has become less physically demanding because most trucks now have more comfortable seats, better ventilation, and improved, ergonomically designed cabs. Although these changes make the work environment less taxing, driving for many hours at a stretch, loading and unloading cargo, and making many deliveries can be tiring.

CDL Drivers frequently work 50 or more hours a week. Shift could start late at night or early in the morning. Typical workweek is Monday through Friday; however, evening and weekend hours are common in some branch office. Although most drivers have regular routes, some have different routes each day. Many truck drivers load and unload their own trucks. This requires considerable lifting, carrying, and walking each day. CDL Drivers will do long-distance driving and may not return home for 2 or 4 days depending on some branch offices; may be exposed to heat, cold, dust, irritants, etc.

The U.S. Department of Transportation governs work hours and other working conditions of truck drivers engaged in interstate commerce. A long-distance driver may drive for 11 hours and work for up to 14 hours—including driving and non-driving duties—after having 10 hours off-duty. A driver may not drive after having worked for 60 hours in the past 7 days or 70 hours in the past 8 days unless they have taken at least 34 consecutive hour’s off-duty. Most drivers are required to document their time in a logbook. Many drivers, particularly on long runs, work close to the maximum time permitted because they typically are compensated according to the number of miles or hours they drive. Drivers on long runs face boredom, loneliness, and fatigue. Drivers often travel nights, holidays, and weekends to avoid traffic delays.
