Understanding the Role of Class A and Class B Drivers in the Commercial Trucking Industry

Understanding the Role of Class A and Class B Drivers in the Commercial Trucking Industry

The commercial trucking industry is a well-oiled machine that keeps our economy humming. A major cog in this machine? Class A and Class B commercial truck drivers. To help you navigate the labyrinth of the trucking world, let’s delve into the roles of these two types of drivers, and how we, a leading CDL driver staffing and placement agency, help them find the perfect fit in the market.

Class A and Class B Drivers

Class A and Class B drivers are the backbone of the transportation sector, playing key roles in ensuring that goods are transported efficiently and safely. Class A drivers operate vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) exceeding 26,001 pounds, and may tow a vehicle weighing more than 10,000 pounds. These drivers cover long-haul routes and transport heavy cargo. On the other hand, Class B drivers typically operate smaller vehicles, such as delivery trucks or passenger buses.

The trucking industry can be an excellent place to grow your career, but finding the right fit can be challenging. We are here to simplify that process. We offer a premier staffing service, matching experienced commercial drivers with businesses that have an immediate transportation need. Our commitment is twofold: ensuring the timely delivery of our customers’ products and providing drivers with a fulfilling job opportunity.
