Trucks and Pics

Aside from the usual business posts i make on this website i thought it was time for something else today. While i was surfing the net today looking for new trucking related information to share with the visitors of roadwaytrucking.org i stumbled on a website that was all about Hank’s Truck Pictures A web site for everyone who loves trucks. Featuring over 350,000 truck pictures from North American and all over the world. Im sure you won’t find any other website out there that has more pictures of trucks than this one. The pictures are categorized in brands such as Freightliner, Dodge and Ford trucks just to name a few. I have to guess here but i think that this website started mainly as a hobby and grew bigger over time and is still being updated at least monthly till now.

Trucking information directory

For those who have been trucking for quite some time you know how difficult it is to find things that help you make your work easier. When your always going to new places it can be quite a hassle to find a gas station which has supplies or other things that are usefull for us truckers. Thankfully nowadays we have the internet which helps us find each other so we can all try to help each other the best way we can, information is the key to a better trucking lifestyle. For example at JR’s Freight Finders you will find an entire directory of shippers, facts about trucking and freight factoring, some trucking games to play and even trucking appearal and accesories such as hats, tshirts or cool truck lighters. On this website of JR (Jeanne Roughface) you can find a huge database of shippers who will work with outside carriers, a membership is required to use his service but for those who are in this business this should not really be a problem. Take care out there all of you and god bless.

Trucking jobs are out there

Some truckers out there just cant seem to find a job that suits their needs, although some might say its quite easy to find a job as long as you are making enough effort to find one. The internet is a great resource for this, there are so many trucking blogs, forums, directories, job and trucking loads sites out there which unite all truckers and help them on their way. Im quite suprised to see how close this community is everyone seems willing to help each other and advice is given by everyone to everyone it doesn’t matter if your new to the business or a hardcore trucker.

Especially to those new in the business we recommend to take a few days and really get into all the reading material out there. Unfortunatly there are some people out there who have bad intentions which can be easily avoided just by reading some of the warning posts on different blogs and forums and the best thing is thats its all free !

A good place to start searching for information would be Trucking Companies Hiring Truck Drivers – Offering trucking jobs, recruiter services, streaming video, and a community for truck drivers. Its definitly a place to find good information and take our advice and take a look at their forum and meet some of the truckers who seem to be living on this forum.

A very easy way to get yourself a job in the trucking industry is filling out the online trucking job application form at TruckerGeek.com – Top Paying Truck Driver Jobs or at truckerjobsearch.com which will allmost certainly lead you to a new job.

The Top 5 Greatest Trucking Schools in America

Trucking Schools in America You Might Want To Attend

 

Finding a good trucking school that doesn’t overcharge and that will give you the skills you need to make it in the field is essential. The CDL certification you need is important. Truck drivers can make a decent wage if they’re properly trained.

There are a number of things you should consider whenever looking for a trucking school. These include:

Credentials

The school should be accredited by an agency that’s approved by the U.S. Department of Education. If this isn’t the case, you can’t be sure about whether a school is “official” or not. The school should also have a certification that meets the Professional Truck Driver Institute standard. This should include at least 44 hours of driving. If you aren’t getting experience through driving at a truck driving school, then what’s the point?

Cost

It can help to look at the connection between how much driving time you get, and how much money the school costs. This rubric can help you learn which schools have a higher value. It’s almost important to look at any fees that the school may not be mentioning up front.

 

The best trucking schools that include these traits are:

5- Western Pacific Truck Schools

These schools are located in California and Washington. Nordic Enterprises runs Western Pacific. There are multiple schools run by WP over the two states. The schools focuses on maximizing driving time, as well as keeping very strictly to the PTDI outlines for truck driving excellency.

4-Diesel Driving Academy

This school is located in Shreveport,LA.There are four different centers in Louisiana for Diesel. Rather than settling for just the local accreditation, the school is trying to get nationally recognized as well. The classroom instruction covers operations, regulations, qualification and maintenance prevention. After the student is deemed to have properly absorbed everything, they get outside and drive trucks in the private driving area. All trainers have experience in the industry, including as freight handlers, diesel mechanics, and various other positions.

3-Isothermal Community College

This college is located in Spindale, North Carolina. The institution is focused on safety and the highest standards of training and is certified by PTDI. The training is one on one to make sure that the student has absorbed everything. Many truck driving schools try to get away with mass training that neglects individual students, but not Isothermal.

2-FoxValleyTechnicalCollege

Fox Valley is a publicly funded school for truck driving that is located in Wisconsin. It’s been approved by the Wisconsin Motor Carriers Association. The school’s funding helped them get top of the line facilities and equipment. It takes ten weeks to go through the main course of the school. The facilities at Fox Valleyinclude a “live drive” feature that has a skid pad.

1- SAGE Technical Services

This school is available all over the country. This is important since it doesn’t make sense to go to any school that’s not near you. You don’t want to spend too much time driving to a place where you are going to learn how to drive, since that would be wasteful. The management has been doing truck driving training ever since the 1970s. One of the main advantages of SAGE is that each student has their own private instructor, and that there will only be one student per truck. This degree of individual attention can be an advantage for serious students. The school also provides its students with comprehensive job placement assistance. This assistance will continue even after a student has graduated.
