Home Time for OTR Truck Drivers Is Important


OTR (over-the-road) drivers often spend weeks, if not months, out on the open road without going home. Top truck driving companies such as K&B Transportation provide incredible home time benefits for workers on their first day. K&B Transportation has an industry where home time is higher than average! They focus on 8 weeks out, which makes planning for home time much simpler. With our traditional OTR or dedicated routes, drivers can expect home time as often as every weekend.

OTR Drivers and Home Time

Earning over a week of home time may feel like a lot, but the days can pass quickly. Get the most out of your experience by planning out your time efficiently. Depending on your job at K&B, most long haul OTR drivers will be out for weeks before they have the chance to go home; however, some drivers prefer this. OTR professionals find a rhythm during their work week and often consider the travel a nice routine. 

Home time at K&B Transportation for OTR truck drivers mainly depends on the job and which route you are responsible for driving. Learn more about what our drivers think and the different options you have with K&B below.
