Driven: the Drive for Dot Blog

Welcome to Driven: the Drive for Dot blog. We created this community to bring you the latest news and information from Dot Transportation, Inc. and the trucking industry. We are passionate about trucks and drivers, and connecting you to the rewarding careers transportation offers. We know truck drivers move America forward and we hope to inspire and educate you along your way. After all, we are folks from all walks of life, from California to Illinois to New York and everywhere in-between. We see every 18-wheeler on the road and love to stop at Flying J’s. Our kids have toy tractor-trailers and so do we.
