Trucking is the dominant mode of domestic freight transportation in the United States. It is divided between for-hire trucking, composed of long-haul and regional truckload carriers and less-than-truckload carriers, and private, shipper-owned fleets. Smaller, niche operators include drayage truckers that haul intermodal containers from rail yards and seaports, and flatbed companies that handle heavy freight.
