Hello all. My fiancé and I are looking to make a move to the Tampa area by years end. She has work lined up already and I'm looking to make a career change. I'm currently in the Marketing/Advertisement field but I also have my CDL A class license to drive tractors.

Is there anyone here in this field or know of anyone in this field who can shed a little light on the job opportunities for CDL drivers in the Tampa area?

Thanks!

There have been posted jobs for lumber/forest products drivers for a local large mill outside of Tampa, American Builders Supply. Also you might check with HD Depot, not to mention the obvious such as UPS and FedEx Freight.


Others like TMC Transportation have been looking.


Don't forget to check large companies like Tropicana (Manatee County), and Mosaic, McEwen Lumber, Robbins Manufacturing (huge treated lumber Co)


Check with large window and door manufacturers such as NewSouth, Universal, PGT.


Others, CRST Expedited (sun city), Oldcastle (blidg products), CPC Logistics (Brandon, Walgreen's fleet)
