You will find Pennsylvania trucking companies below that are hiring qualified people to haul their freight. These trucking jobs may be local, regional or over the road. They may be dedicated, which means they run the same routes consistently, or trips that vary after each delivery. To see if there is a local trucking company hiring in your area look at the city. If you don't see your city listed search for your city trucking jobs will show if they are available.

Pennsylvania has plenty of trucking jobs as it's economy is huge, topping the list for production of layer chickens, milk, nursery products, horses, and grapes. Dominating for production of mushrooms.

Trucking in Pennsylvania though requires a driver to pay close attention to what he/she is doing. Most of the terrain is hilly or mountains of varying grades. Plus there is a lot of wildlife crossing the roads.

The weigh stations that I am most familiar with are usually in rest areas and are almost always closed but when they are open they can be pretty thorough. You will see a sign at the rest area sign that says whether the weigh station is open or closed.

Rest areas may be patrolled by law enforcement. In some areas idling laws are enforced. The one off of I-78 near route east of exit 49.

CDL Training


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...

  • 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.
