Because most freight is intended to reach its destination by a certain date and time, proper planning is necessary. Inclement weather, traffic, road construction, fuel and food stops, and repairs can all affect how quickly a vehicle can travel its intended route. This course will help learners recognize practical and safety considerations for over-the-road travel and long-range trip planning, including routing, scheduling, contingency and emergency planning, and DOT inspection and hours of service limitations. This course is intended for both CDL and non-CDL drivers who drive long distances on the job. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
