I'm currently driving teams with CRST. I have no complaints about the company at all. I do NOT like driving team. Anyways, after I finish up my year with them I'm really wanting to get into tanker division. I'd love to have something regional so I could be home every weekend or two. I'd really like to see my 3 year old daughter grow up.

So now my question: can anyone recommend a good company or companies to start researching that I could work for living in San Diego CA?

I heard prime is a good company and also Schneider. Do they offer something like I'm looking for?

Thank you to all who take the time to read and or reply.

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

This website has a job search. For a regional / local opportunity, also try Googling tanker companies for your area. Google search should come up with some results specifying in tanker for your area. Not sure about your area, but as others have mentioned, Schneider and Prime have tank divisions that can have regional runs, at least they offer regional in the northeast. If you're set on tankers, you can also try fuel hauling. Daniel B. is a moderator on there and after paying his due OTR with Prime, he got a local job in CA hauling fuel.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Thanks for the replies. I have been researching both Schneider and prime. Schneider seems to do more of the eastern region. And what I've seen about prime is that a regional route is pretty much non existent. I'll keep googling but if anyone has any input please feel free to share

There are a lot of smaller companies that do this type of work. You may have to dig a little. Also, maybe snoop around some food manufacturers. For example, there is a sucrose company in my town. I know the 2 main bulk carriers they use to haul their liquid sugar. That's just an example, but you get the idea.
