While there are plenty truck drivers available throughout the nation, there are some jobs that require a professional truck driver. When your business is relying on a freight shipment to arrive at a specific time, a professional truck driver is the best person to turn to. At Evan Transportation, we hire professional truck drivers to ensure freight entrusted to us is shipped in a manner that is safe, efficient, and quick. So what exactly makes a professional truck driver?

Professional Truck Driver Traits

  1. Focus- A professional truck driver is focused on his truck only. He will avoid any distractions within the cab of his truck, including cell phones, food, and unnecessary passengers. While paying attention to surroundings is important when driving, a professional truck driver will avoid becoming involved with another driver and how they are managing their job.
  2. Safe- A professional truck driver never sacrifices safety when shipping freight. This means they never engage in aggressive driving behaviors, no matter what the circumstance is. A professional truck driver will never get behind the wheel when feeling fatigued, and will know when to pull over should they meet inclement or severe weather.
  3. Professional- There are drivers that sometimes let the road get the better of them. This means they will engage with aggressive drivers who feel the need to cut off or out run truck drivers on the road. While it may be easy to “teach” a lesson to other drivers, a professional truck driver never takes part in such behavior.
  4. Attentive- Being attentive is crucial when shipping freight in a tractor trailer or large semi-truck. A professional truck driver will always check the weather and traffic reports before leaving for his destination. This allows them to be aware of possible poor weather and congested traffic areas.
