Local drivers may provide daily service for a specific route while other drivers make inter-city and interstate deliveries that take longer and may vary from job to job. Long-distance heavy truck and tractor-trailer drivers spend most of their working time behind the wheel but may load or unload their cargo after arriving at their final destination. Drivers frequently travel at night, on holidays and weekends to avoid traffic delays and deliver cargo on time.
