Most Common OTR Freight Types

MichiganTruckingJobs.com by WDS Enterprises, Inc.

#1 Retail Supplies:

The most common Over-The-Road haul is for retail supplies across the country, this could mean delivering dry goods to grocery stores from the manufacturer location to the store location of the clients choice. Grocery stores, clothing stores, or furniture stores all need Over-The-Road truck drivers to get their good from point A to point B in a timely manner depending on their demand.

#2 Liquids:

The 2nd most common Over-The-Road haul is delivering liquid goods to various clients across the United States. Liquids could mean milk, molasses, or any other retail good that is needed in a grocery store or other type of business. Although, other types of liquids that are common are cement, oil, and gas; which typically would require you to drive a tanker truck and isn’t always an Over-The-Road haul. Typically, liquid hauls are harder to transport and compensate better for the difficulty that comes with this type of truck driving haul.

#3 Raw Materials/Construction Hauls:

The 3rd most common haul in Over-The-Road truck driving hauls is raw materials. This means steel pipes, wood planks, steel frames, etc. These are to be carried on a flatbed truck that is exposed and can be more difficult to manage as these materials are more dangerous to carry on the road. Construction job sites and construction retail stores need Over-The-Road truck drivers to deliver these goods across the entire country at all times.
