Why trucking?

  • Employment prospects
    This is a $67 billion industry. Almost everything shipped spends time in a tractor-trailer or large truck. Whether it is gas, groceries or office supplies, they all arrive at their destination by a truck. Shipping companies, with an aging workforce, are always looking for qualified drivers, which is why they turn to Humber College. This is a secure field with high-paying jobs for hard-working individuals.
  • Variety of careers
    A start in trucking means you have career options. You can work as a fleet manager, driver trainer, operations manager, logistics coordinator, safety and loss prevention manager, transportation analyst, dispatcher, maintenance manager and more.
  • Changing industry
    The conditions for drivers have improved. Tractor-trailers now have roomy beds, TVs, microwaves and computers. Many companies have refreshment depots for drivers spread out across the country, with gyms, rest areas, showers, cafeterias and lounges. 
  • The lifestyle
    Do you want to be paid to see new places and meet interesting people? Do you want a flexible work schedule? As you gain experience, you have more of a say in your schedule. You can work short-haul and be home each night, or long-haul and explore the country. There are many options, since this is a field looking for people.
