Southland Transportation is hiring OTR CDL-A drivers in your area • Excellent Insurance Benefits Available • Quality Home Time ️️

Job Overview



Trucking Done Differently 

Southland Transportation is one of the South East's top trucking companies offering both the opportunity for drivers to make a comfortable income and enjoy time with their families as they are home weekly. At Southland, you are more than a driver, you are family. On our team, you will have the tools and technology to do your job and the means to get back to your family for much needed home time on a weekly basis. Local, regional and OTR positions are available.


Pay and Benefits 

Southland is eager to attract safe drivers that want to find their forever home. We offer competitive compensation and a generous benefits package, including full health insurance (medical, dental, vision), 401(k), life insurance, short and long term disability coverage, and more. Drivers will earn anywhere from $1000 to $1750 per week. Additionally, extra pay is provided for detention, layover and deadhead, along with safely operating your truck. 

What You’ll Need to Succeed at Southland

At a minimum, you’ll need:

  • To be 21 years of age or older
  • 2 Years of OTR Experience within the last 3 Years 
  • A Valid Class A Commercial Driver’s License
  • A Valid DOT Medical Card
  • Safe driving record and history
  • To pass a DOT drug test and have no prior positive tests or refusals
  • Availability to work a flexible schedule that includes 12-14 hour days, consisting of day, night and some weekend shifts


Come Experience the Difference


Family owned and operated, when you work with Southland you get the best of both worlds: a company that is big enough to provide the equipment and technology you need to do your job, but small enough that we know you by name. 

Our drivers enjoy the benefits of a financially stable and secure company that is committed to providing their drivers with the support they need to succeed on the road while balancing miles and home time. You’ll be assigned a 70MPH late model truck, not have to load and unload the freight, and experience no HAZMAT loads, no NYC or California lanes while earning a weekly paycheck.
