Hot Shot Trucking

Get to Know Hot Shot Trucking

Hot shot trucking is sometimes referred to as expedited shopping. Expedited shipping now generally refers to vans, straight trucks and T/T’s that deliver your time-sensitive freight on a schedule. On the other hand, hot shot trucking typically uses one ton or medium-duty trucks to delivery time sensitive loads and to pull trailers. Overall, hot shot trucking uses midsize class 3, 4, or 5 trucks to move items quickly. Even super duty pickup trucks can be hot shot delivery vehicles. The benefit of hot shot trucking with smaller vehicles is that there is no CDL requirement if the driver transports under 10,000 pounds. All drivers need is an MC number and operating authority from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
