Most Common Local Freight Types

MichiganTruckingJobs.com by WDS Enterprises, Inc.

#1 Grain:

Across the entire state of Michigan, grain is needed as it is a very agriculturally rich state. This is the most common local truck driving haul. Grain hauls require a special tanker truck that is easy to manage as the truck driver, especially considering that grain hauls are local and are never more than a 300 mile radius. Local truck drivers enjoy this type of haul the most because the unloading is typically done by the customer who needs this grain, or they can assist you in unloading this haul. Because of the shortened time it takes to unload grain, you will be back on the road heading home in almost no time.

#2 Farm Goods:

Aside from grain, there are plenty of other goods that need to be delivered to local farms such as feed and farming equipment. This is the 2nd most common local freight type amongst local truck drivers in Michigan. There might be some different types of tankers or trailers you will be driving, and to rural areas of Michigan, but you will be guaranteed to be home at the end of the night.

#3 Gravel & Sand:

Gravel and Sand are the 3rd most common local truck driving hauls in Michigan. These hauls are delivered to and from gravel quarry’s in Michigan. These local truck driving hauls require a dump truck type trailer for easy unloading. The difficulty of gravel and sand hauling is not nearly as difficult compared to hauling liquids across Michigan, but it does require a careful eye when driving on the highway.
