Commercial Drivers

Heavy tractor-trailer drivers with a commercial driver’s license (CDL) transport goods from one location to another. Driver schedules can vary widely depending on the type of route they travel. Drivers can travel local routes that can be completed within a day, or they can be assigned to longer trips that span several states and require several days on the road. Commercial drivers are required to adhere to state and federal safety regulations, and perform a variety of functions aside from driving. Drivers are responsible for securing cargo for transport, inspecting their trailers before and after a trip, identifying and reporting mechanical problems, and maintaining a log of their hours. Most commercial drivers work for transport companies, but some may own or lease their own tractor-trailers and work for themselves!

Laborers and Freight, Stock, and Material Movers

Logistical training prepares individuals for employment in supply chain management as a shipper and receiver, dispatcher, material handler, logistics coordinator, warehouse manager or inventory controller. These careers involve different steps in managing the life cycle of products from the supplier to the consumer. People with logistics training in supply chain management may work in manufacturing, professional, scientific or technical services companies, or the federal government
