What is a Local Truck Driving Job?

A local truck driving job typically consists of transporting freight within a 300-mile radius, allowing the driver to normally complete their deliveries and return home the same day. Company local truck drivers enjoy access to comprehensive health benefits offerings including medical, dental and vision as well as life insurance, 401K and paid vacation.
 
Over half of J.B. Hunt’s truck driving jobs are local - meaning drivers get home daily to what matters most. A variety of local jobs are available within our Dedicated Contract Services, Final Mile and Intermodal fleets. Read further to find the best local truck driving job that fits your lifestyle and career goals.

Our Dedicated Contract Services (DCS) division offers local drivers unique duties operating a wide variety of equipment including flatbed, traditional van, reefer, curtain side, doubles and live haul as well as straight truck delivery. Within DCS, our Final Mile division offers local CDL jobs and non-CDL positions that include delivering and installing appliances, electronics and more into customers’ homes and businesses.

J.B. Hunt’s Intermodal division offers more traditional driving duties - transporting freight containers from rail yards to customer locations. As an industry leader in intermodal, we have over 84,000 containers and our own chassis, as well as private speed gates at a number of facilities for efficient service.

Through our Hunt’s Heroes military hiring program, we also have local trucking jobs for Veterans and transitioning service members within DCS, Intermodal and Final Mile, no matter their driving experience. Since many have served away from home and their loved ones for long periods of time, local jobs give Veterans the home time that they deserve.

“When people ask me what I do and who I drive for – I drive for Final Mile, and I am home every night and every weekend – that’s what I tell them,” said local Final Mile driver Mike. “It gives me the opportunity to stay home and see my kids grow up and be there when they need me.”

“The whole time I’ve stayed with J.B. Hunt is because they got me home. That was important to me,” said local DCS driver Joe. “They really do get you home…even on the holidays.”

“Home time is great. Vacation time is great. Pay is awesome and healthcare benefits. We take advantage of everything they have to offer,” said Anneka, spouse of local Intermodal driver T-Bone.
