By having the right balance of work and time at home drivers are able to develop a work life balance which can be hard to come by in the trucking industry.

We have to be on the top of our game out there when driving and if drivers are burnt out from too much work it will show in their driving performance. This can lead to unsafe driving situations that can put themselves and others at risk.

When you get to take advantage of home time there are many benefits that drivers have. For example, many drivers tend to get homesick while being away for long periods of time.

This gives drivers a sense of purpose with some goals which keeps the passion and pride strong along their career. Having the right amount of home time provides a better lifestyle. It gives you a sense of me time that develops into true driver happiness.
