The Best Reasons Why the Veterans Make Great Truck Drivers

By Frank Krueger July 28, 2020 0 comments

Returning military veterans usually have a hard time finding a job that they are qualified for. But the skills and experiences they’ve gained while in the service actually make them a great fit as truck drivers. The qualities they possess are exactly the same qualities that the trucking companies are looking for in their truck drivers. Find out here why the veterans make great truck drivers.

1. Self discipline

Who could have more self-discipline than military veterans? This is a quality very much needed for truck drivers too. They need to get up on time to be able to make their deliveries on time. They are responsible for every action they make while on the road.

2. Dependability

Both the trucking company and its customers depend on truck drivers to deliver their goods on time. A lot could go wrong when the delivery is late. Dependability is one of the best traits required both in the military and the trucking industry.

3. Situational awareness

Truck driving is a dangerous job, especially for unaware drivers. Just like in the military, truck drivers need to be aware of their environment to ensure the safety of everyone.

4. Mental stamina

Driving for long hours can cause fatigue and mental strain. Mental stamina is one of the best qualities that military veterans possess.

5. Leadership

It takes leadership skills to be in the military. A characteristic very much needed for truck drivers too. Leadership is the ability to set good examples to others while taking the initiative to do things others are not willing to do.

Thank you for your service!

For all our returning veterans, we would like to say thank you for your service. If we see a veteran driving a truck, let’s pay respect to him in whatever small way we can. If he is a loved one, let’s say your dad, your husband, your brother, or anyone close to you, a simple token of appreciation will surely inspire them while driving.
