Michigan Trucking Association
Trucking in Michigan is nearly the best thing going. With an unemployment rate at 10.1% as of date a quality trucker can find a trucking company in Michigan that is hiring. You know the state for Detroit and it's automobile production but Michigan is also the 3rd largest producer of Christmas tress. Other freight that will need to haul hauled includes but is not limited to cereal products, iron and copper,furniture and military equipment. I am a pizza nut so I have to tell you this...Domino's and Little Caesars was founded in Michigan.

The best route to your CDL depends on your situation.
If there is a community college near you, it may be your best choice.
However, there are many good private schools programs too. Some people will have no choice but attending trucking company training and many of those are good too.
Some questions to ask...
Types of Trucking Jobs
- How long will you have to drive for them to pay off the training?
- What is the penalty for breaking contract? (If possible, don't break the contract.)
- How many hours behind the wheel drive time
- What expenses are you responsible for during training?
- How much is pay after getting your CDL? Some pay is a set amount and some pay mileage. You just need to know what to expect.
I just think it is important because most drivers assume they will be getting a regular trucker's salary. Often not true.
