Employment in South Carolina with a local trucking company can get you more than just a paycheck. Local trucking companies or trucking companies with a terminal near your house are likely to want to come back in to pick up load from local accounts that they serve. Often this is part of the reason the terminal exists there. This is especially if they specialize or serve a specific industry.
For instance, my company specialized in furniture and they always wanted us right back in to haul their high dollars loads out.
NOTE: Not all local trucking companies operate this way!
