What does a hot shot truck driver do?
A hotshot driver is a truck driver whose responsibilities are to pick up and deliver freight to a customer. In this job, you will drive a heavy duty pickup (3/4 to one ton) truck with a flatbed trailer. Many drivers have a Class A CDL which allows them to haul heavier loads, but it is not required to get started.
Your primary duties are to expedite delivery of equipment or freight to your client. For example, you may haul essential equipment to distant locations in oil fields or to remote areas where power stations or other utilities are in need of equipment to keep service running. You will often haul cars for people who are relocating to a different state. Some hot shots need to be delivered a short distance of a few hundred miles, but others may need to go across the country.
All of our hotshot drivers operate as 1099 independent contractors.
