What Is the Difference Between a Short Haul Driver and a Long Haul Driver
The difference between a short-haul driver and a long-haul driver is mainly one of distance traveled. Most short-haul drivers are responsible for deliveries with a maximum radius between 150 and 250 miles, while a long-haul trucker is designated by driving more than 250 miles to make a single delivery. Short-haul truckers may have to operate on narrower surface streets more often as well and can make up to four deliveries per day as opposed to long-haul drivers who may not even make one delivery per day. Short-haul truckers also spend less time on the road away from home.
