Team Driver Transport

Logistics Term

What’s team driver transport?

Team driver transport means that a truck has more than one driver, and they take turns in driving it. Truck drivers are only allowed to drive for 11 hours after having 10 hours off duty to rest. That means if a truck is only operated by one driver, they have to rest at some point. When you use team driver transport, one driver will be driving while the other rests. That means the loads are delivered faster. Team driver transport is more expensive than regular one driver transport. That’s because the cargo is delivered sooner.
