Dear Hiring Manager:
I am very interested in applying for a position as a truck driver with ABC Trucking Company. I understand that since the recent merger with Truck Services USA, your fleet has tripled as well as your need for qualified truck drivers to manage long haul deliveries from the east coast to mid western regions. As I believe I am a good fit for the job, I have attached my resume covering my strong experience as a long haul truck driver.
I offer 25+ years of experience transporting commercial materials on intra and inter-state long hauls for major materials manufacturers. Unfortunately, my last employer was forced to close its doors last month due to the recent economy’s impact on their business.
As an expert operator of 18-wheelers and straight trucks with 5, 9, 10 and 13 transmission speeds, I proficiently navigated all major highways throughout Northeast, Midwest and Southern regions. In my career, I earned the respect of my employers and customers for meeting all deliveries on time while managing all aspects of fleet maintenance, vehicle registrations and DMV requirements.
I maintain an excellent driving record and am able to operate vehicles under inclement and heavily populated conditions. I am familiar with domestic and international loading and unloading pick-up points and procedures, and can expertly carry out tailgate deliveries and operate forklifts to unload product.
Moreover, I am adept at calculating mileage using industry software, and possess administrative skills vital to maintaining on-going expenses and activity logs. Coupled with my mechanical skills, I have saved my employers thousands of dollars every year by performing light vehicle maintenance and repair work.
I have a very strong work ethic and have built strong customer relations exercising a customer-friendly attitude. If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit for a position as a long haul truck driver with your organization.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
