COVID-19, Truck Driving

As states have raced to shut down businesses to prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus, the roads have gone quieter. Normally gridlocked cities like Los Angeles and Chicago have seen much faster traffic speeds during the so-called rush hour. But shelter-in-place orders are harder to carry out when your office is moving 65 mph, traveling hundreds of miles a day, and helping to drive the emergency supplies and supermarket goods that are keeping the country running during an unprecedented public health crisis. Now, more than ever is a good time to outline ways to avoid catching airborne viruses, such as COVID-19 and the flu, especially in industries such as trucking. Here are some tips for staying safe during these uncertain times. 

Wash Your Hands!!


We know this is a simple step. It is also a given at this point. But washing your hands is one of the safest ways you can stop the spread of coronavirus and should be done for a minimum of 26 seconds. Furthermore, sterilization practices should be fully embraced. Keeping a set of sterilizing wipes on you when you refuel your truck is also crucial. The pump is one of the most widely touched areas for truckers. Thus, in keeping with coronavirus containment, these should be sterilized as well.

Try To Avoid Leaving Your Truck As Much As Possible.


We understand that most truck drivers are under the finger of technology. Many have had a problem with being monitored for driving over 8 hours a day. Many are either under the gun on time as it is, so staying in the cab and continuing the drive is a pretty reliable method of keeping out of harm’s way. Whenever you leave the truck, follow back to step 1, and you should be fine. One of the benefits for truckers is the lack of populated areas when on the road. Typically it’s just the driver, the truck and the open road. Truckers themselves are one of the more isolated career paths.

Stock Up On Food and Water.


Experienced truckers will tell any amateur about having the necessary survival snacks for emergencies. In this case, self-isolation has plenty of restaurants closing down across the country. On top of that, may large-scale supply stores like Walmart and Costco are flooded with people trying to stock up. Keeping a necessary amount of dried, canned (and whatever else) goods can be a substantial beneficiating factor when driving coast-to-coast. You should have enough food to properly make a meal that pertains to the essential food groups. 

Truckers Are Heroes!


We wanted to take a moment out of this very stressful time to thank the people who have our back every single day. Thank you to our entire team – our drivers, dispatch, safety, recruiting, billing department, IT, HR and all of our amazing managers. YOU are keeping this company moving to help keep America moving!
