NTB is a regional trucking company, which offers several benefits in contrast with OTR (Over-the-Road) driving. Between staying closer to home, the efficiency of familiar routes and customers, and job security, regional truck driving is a great career opportunity.

 

Close to Home

Driving closer to home on your routes and having guaranteed home time every week means you can eat healthier, see family and friends on a regular basis, and schedule any necessary appointments during regular business hours. Whereas OTR drivers may be away from home for weeks at a time, regional truck drivers work in the region where they live. NTB drivers are out five days and home the same two days every week.

 

Open Roads in Familiar Areas

While not every dispatch will be the same, regional drivers have the unique advantage of knowing the area where they are hauling. Unlike driving in an unfamiliar area, regional drivers can focus on the road rather than the GPS. NTB drivers enjoy the beautiful and diverse sights of the Midwest from vast fields to dense forests, and the Great Lakes and beautiful rivers that the states they serve are known for.

 

Job Security

Regional truck driving is a tremendous opportunity for job security. Let’s face it, the job market is pretty good right now and that includes careers in trucking. NTB’s drivers are highly valued and we have a strong reputation for compensating drivers fairly. In part, this is shown by offering solid benefits and steady pay to those who roll with NTB.
