Freedom of the Road: Top 4 Perks of Driving

The transportation and logistics industry offers unlimited career opportunities, including a wide range of freight and courier driver positions we offer here at 24/7 Express Logistics. With our consumer-driven economy, the demand for drivers is higher than ever before. Many may be surprised at all the perks that can come with choosing a career as a commercial driver, but we’ll focus on the big four that can set you up for a lifetime of success.


The phrase “freedom of the road” holds a lot of truth. For those who aren’t thrilled with the idea of spending days behind a desk, a commercial driving job can offer the change of pace to keep life interesting. Our drivers at 24/7 Express Logistics are home the same day and can choose long-haul day trips or local routes from our hubs in Kansas City and St. Louis. We offer flexible schedules and paid time off for our employee drivers.


24/7 Express Logistics drivers are given a high level of independence in their careers. In addition to flexible schedules and route selections, being a driver allows individuals to be more independent than many other positions. Many of our drivers enjoy the time alone with the support of a knowledgeable and helpful dispatch team that have their backs.

Job Security

It’s no secret that reliable drivers are in demand. Finding a company, like 24/7 Express Logistics, can make your career even more rewarding. We are a locally owned and operated company where the owner is on site every day and knows our drivers by name. Many of our drivers at 24/7 have stated they plan to retire from 24/7 Express Logistics. A big reason for that is our tight-knit team atmosphere where everyone looks out for each other and leadership that genuinely cares about you and your future.

Salary and Benefits

Now, more than ever, drivers are able to make a good, reliable income with solid benefits. Independent contract drivers have the opportunity to achieve $100K+ income while still maintaining their flexibility with the support of our  24/7 Express Logistics team. For our employee drivers, we offer a host of competitive benefits including:

  • Safety Bonuses and Spot Awards
