Dedicated

Dedicated drivers operate in a specific area, delivering freight to the same customers each time. 

Dedicated drivers deliver to the same customers, making it easier to build a relationship with your clientele. For this same reason, it’s especially important to provide the best customer service possible. As you spend more time with your clients, they will begin to associate you as the face of the company, meaning the company’s relationship partly relies on you and your performance. Familiar terrain. 

Once you’ve traveled the same route a few times, you can begin to learn the best ways to navigate and know when traffic jams will arise. While this is a more efficient way to travel, you also run the risk of becoming burned out due to the repetitiveness of the drive. 

If you’d rather see a new part of the country with each travel, you may be better suited for an over-the-road position than a dedicated driving job.
