Trucking Companies and CDL Information in Maryland

Maryland CDL Truck Driver Salary Information

The state of Maryland enjoys many profitable industries. Here are just a few of them:

Aerospace and Defense
Cyber security, biodefense, avionics, and weapons testing are all thriving businesses in the state. The aerospace and defense businesses generate more than $35 billion annually.

Fishing
There’s a booming fishing industry thanks to Maryland’s prime geographic placement along the Atlantic coast. The state is the largest producer of blue crabs in the country and also produces catfish, shellfish, tilapia, and striped bass.

Life Sciences
Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore leads the way for total NIH monetary awards. Life science organizations in the state produce almost $17 billion in economic activity.

Manufacturing
The first industries in Maryland were centered around the Baltimore shipyards in the early 1800s. They started with ironworks and grew to include weather-measuring instruments. The state’s top manufacturers are currently printing and publishing, food, machinery, and chemicals.

Cyber Security
You may not know that Maryland is considered the nation’s center for cyber security. It’s home to 50 federal facilities and 12 military installations including the Army’s Communication and Electronics Command and the NSA. There are more than 200,000 government employees and contractors focused on cyber security and technological innovations in the state’s security and technology facilities.

Maryland Trucking Salaries

Thinking about these top industries leads one to suspect that trucking is pretty important to the success of these Maryland businesses. So it’s no wonder that when looking to the future the projected growth of truck drivers in Maryland is 11% from 2014 to 2024.

That is almost double the nation’s projection of 6%. Choosing to drive in the state of Maryland is a great idea. If there are any negatives it would no doubt be the traffic, but that’s just another challenge to you, right?

Depending on what type of job you are looking for, try to find one that best suits your personality, your relationships, and your lifestyle so that you can enjoy being a driver for many years. There are three basic types of drivers and those are:

  1. Intrastate – These drivers stay with state lines, which also means you’ll probably be home for dinner every night.
  2. Regional – Drivers venture out of state but stay within the northeast region. Maryland’s bordering states are: Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia.
  3. Over-the-road – These are the men and women who trek across country, sleep in their cabs, and really, really love life on the road. Often, they are away from home for weeks at a time.

Salaries for all these jobs are good, especially in Maryland. Truck drivers in the state make a median annual salary of $44,100 while the rest of the country gets by on $41,340. Keep in mind that median is not the average.

Median is the salary figure that is right in the middle with 50% of salaries above and 50% below. Working in one of the larger cities can garner you a bigger paycheck as the median salary in Baltimore is $45,560 and for the Upper Eastern Shore it’s $43,050.

Maryland CDL License Information and Insights

Most of the time, you need to have a commercial learner’s permit (CLP) before you can apply for a Maryland commercial driver’s license (CDL). If you have a CDL from another state or from Canada, you may be able to convert it to a Maryland CDL without having to get a CLP.

In Maryland, as in most other states, CDL applicants must present valid Med Cert documentation (DOT card, skills performance evaluation, waiver exemption, etc.) to prove they are fit enough to perform their job. Commercial drivers must submit updated Med Cert documentation to the MVA for the period of time their license is valid.

All commercial drivers are required to “self-certify” concerning the type of commercial driving they’ll be doing (it all depends on the type of commerce and/or the driver’s medical qualifications).

When a commercial driver’s medical certificate expires, a medical professional listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners must examine him/her. This is a new Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) program.

Only a medical examiner that has completed training and successfully passed the FMCSA’s physical qualification standards can be listed on the national registry. To find a Certified Medical Examiner in your area online, go hereor you can call the FMSCA at 1-800-832-5660.

Maryland’s Cutting Edge CDL Technology

The Maryland Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) has created one of the most secure driver’s licenses, learner’s permits, and identification (ID) cards in the nation.

All cards are delivered through the mail within 7-10 business days. These new cards have security features that help protect against identity theft and fraud. The new cards also meet all state and federal standards and are REAL ID compliant.

The REAL ID Act was created by the Department of Homeland Security and sets security standards for issuing driver’s licenses and producing them. The act also prohibits Federal agencies from accepting driver’s licenses and ID cards from states that don’t meet the Act’s minimum standards for the following purposes: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft.

You can set up skills test appointments online. You can also call the MVA Customer Service Center at 410-768-7000 or if you are hearing impaired call 1-800-492-4575 (SOURCE).

Maryland Trucking in the News

Annette Womack has an impressive resume as a truck driver. She has over 30 years of experience and has driven more than 1.7 million accident-free miles during that time. She is also the first woman to be named the Maryland Motor Truck Association’s Driver of the Year.

Womack drives for Giant Food Stores and has made a fulfilling career out of truck driving. She sleeps at home every night and her hobby is allowing other people to handle the transportation as she travels the world.

“Women can do this, but people judge you,” Womack said. “That’s why it’s hard to be a female truck driver.” The requirements to maintain her position have educated her about transportation, management, and the trucking industry.

Womack started her career when she was 24. Her father’s friend owned a trucking company and trained her to drive. She saw a newspaper ad for truck drivers at Citgo. She accepted the job, and was hauling Citgo gas to 7-Elevens.

In 1995, Womack took a new job at Giant Food Stores. “There weren’t many women in the field. It was a great honor to do it,” she said. Jamie Miller, manager of public and community relations at Giant said, “We’re incredibly proud of Annette. She’s one of Giant’s finest.”

Womack wants to broaden other people’s understanding of truck drivers. Through outreach initiatives by Giant, she visits schools to talk with kids about her experiences behind the wheel.

Twenty years ago, Womack said, truck drivers could coast through many roads, but these days with all the technology at driver’s fingertips combined with increased traffic volume have created dangerous driving conditions. If she could give drivers one bit of advice it would be, “Don’t talk on the phone. Just drive.” (SOURCE)
