Because nearly everything is delivered by truck, truck drivers are needed throughout the country. Most drivers tend to live within a reasonable driving distance of their company yard, but this is relative to the driver and the company. Other drivers may use their family home as their base of operation and travel all over the country. As for geographic restrictions on where a driver will be needed to drive once hired – that is determined by the type of route and needs of the trucking company. If you prefer to drive in a certain part of the country, make sure to discuss this with any prospective employer to see if it is feasible for both you and the company.
