EXPEDITED TEAM DRIVERS
Expedite Your Shipments With B4 Logistics’ Team Drivers
A team driver is a person who drives trucks as part of a team. Using a driving team allows a truck to be on the road continuously, resulting in faster delivery of the products on board.
Team drivers are paired with another driver in the same truck. While one driver operates the truck, the other rests or sleeps. The truck can be kept continuously moving for the most part, with periodic stops for hygiene and food. Drivers on a team can work out their own schedule and hours; they may take long or short shifts, for example, to allow varying amounts of rest.
When you have to have it there on-time for a dedicated customer commitment, you can trust the B4 Logistics team driver service.

B4 LOGISTICS' DEDICATED TEAM DRIVERS
Trustworthy Team Drivers
Driving a truck on the open road is physically and psychologically demanding. B4 Logistics’ team truck drivers have proven that they are able to trust each other, together they work out amicable agreements about shifts and rest periods.
Our team truck drivers look out for the other driver, keeping a log of their hours and activities, while observing all relevant laws.
Team truck drivers are usually drivers who know each other well, but they can also be a husband and wife duo who work very well within the relationship because, as partners, they are close and enjoy working as a team.
Our experienced team truck drivers negotiate the terms of wage splits and other matters with their partners to keep things as fair as possible.
OFFICIAL TEAM DRIVER REGULATIONS
In the United States, the hours of service (HOS) for commercial drivers are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
Hours of Service
Commercial motor vehicle drivers are limited to 11 cumulative hours driving in a 14-hour period, following a rest period of no less than 10 consecutive hours.
Drivers employed by carriers in “daily operation” may not work more than 70 hours within any period of 8 consecutive days. Since July 2013, drivers also require a break of 30 minutes to be taken before 8 hours of duty is reached. There are additional HOS regulations for California.
Record of Duty Status
Every driver must maintain a daily 24-hour logbook, or Record of Duty Status (RODS), documenting all work and rest periods.
The RODS must be kept current to the last change of duty status and hold records of the previous 7 days.
The RODS is required to be retained by the truck driver at all times and easily accessible to show to law enforcement officials on demand.
Disclaimer: All freight must be of legal length, legal width, legal height and legal weight in order to for us to provide you with our team service. If permits are required, we cannot use team drivers because of the length of time it takes for some states to issue permits.
