Over The Road Trucking Definition
Over the road trucking involves hauling cargo over long distances and being on the road for over three weeks at a time. Every day, drivers gain more experience on the road and are confident enough to plan their routes and cover more than local and regional grounds.

Expedited or time-sensitive products
Any item ranging from one pallet to a full truckload
