Hauling containers can be a pain in the butt. But not all of the time. I have talked to plenty of truckers who love pulling containers. It's just like anything else, people have their preferences and different jobs speak to different people. Some trucking companies have good management and a smooth operation and pays their drivers fairly.
Some container haulers go port to port. Others go from port to distribution center and of course you have other variations of a container hauler's actual job too. Can't elaborate in detain about the job, never hauled containers.
I have talked to drivers who got paid more than average trucking jobs and drivers who got paid a lot less than average trucking jobs. Used to be a lot of time wasted at ports when I heard the most complaining from drivers pulling containers. That may have been just their outfits.
Here I am getting loaded with product that came off of one of these containers. These guys were like watching a reality comedy show. Then again, you know I laugh at everything.
Check to the bottom of the page for real container haulers description of what it is like to haul containers.
