In trucking, short haul refers to a commercial vehicle being driven over a relatively short distance in a day (i.e., up to 250 miles) and returning to a home base at the end of each shift. This is in contrast to tractor-trailer units driven much farther, such as interstate or between cities—known as long haul or OTR (over the road).
An example of a short haul trip could be a food and beverage delivery truck with a dozen customers to service in a single day, all in the same local area.
Short haul drivers may be exempt from some HOS (Hours of Service) rules and using an electronic logging device (ELD).
Built to make your driver’s day easy, this FMCSA-certified ELD is connected directly to the vehicle for improved accuracy and automated logging. Includes 24/7 phone support.
