Essentials for Every Truck Driver


An IRP for your trucks gives you the privilege to enter all IRP jurisdictions. These plans are required for vehicles participating in interstate commerce. 
As a trucking service in Indiana, we understand that driving outside your state and into several others can be a long affair. To help truck drivers thrive as they fulfill their duties, let us discuss several essentials you need to bring during these long drives.

  • Important Documents
    Obtaining a trucking authority is not easy. Please don’t mess up your drives by not having the right documents with you, and remember to bring your certifications for your cargo (if needed). Your commercial license and proof of insurance should be with you always.
  • Vital Kits
    The most well-planned trips can still be unpredictable. Be sure to have a well-stocked medical and first-aid kit on board. 
    Also, never leave without a good hygiene kit stocked with all your hygiene needs. Throw in shower slippers, as most showers aren’t reliably clean.
  • Food and Water
    You can always get food at rest stops. But you may get hungry and can’t afford to stop. Bring enough food and water for the trip.
  • Clean Clothing
    It goes without saying that you should bring several clean clothes for your trip. Your trip can take days to complete, and you will need to stay fresh for the encounters you can make on your trip.
  • Gloves
    Bringing a handy pair of gloves during your drive. They protect your hands well from harm and can keep you warm in low-temperature areas.
