According the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers transport goods from one location to another. Most tractor-trailer drivers are long-haul drivers and operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity—that is, the combined weight of the vehicle, passengers, and cargo—exceeding 26,000 pounds. These drivers deliver goods over intercity routes, sometimes spanning several states.”

The Bureau predicts the job outlook for Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers will increase by 6% from 2016 to 2026. *www.bls.gov
