Sample Truck Driver Cover Letter

We welcome you to JobBank USA and hope your job hunting experience is a pleasant one. We hope you find our resources useful.

Notice how the applicant in this truck driver cover letter focuses on his ability to relate to people. He is not simply a transporter. Truck drivers should be able to communicate effectively with the people they interact with—both when they leave the initial job site and when they pull up to the delivery site. Therefore, truck driver cover letters should include this essential information.

Dear Mr. Paulson:
I've wanted to be a truck driver ever since I rode with my Uncle Herman, a driver for Bluebird Bakery, when I was a kid. He loved the open road and I do too. But more important, I learned from my uncle the importance of communicating effectively with the people I work with and for. I take pride in turning clients into friends and in providing excellent customer service from the time I leave the loading dock until I complete the delivery at the other end.

I have an excellent driving record, and am licensed to drive large rigs as well as small trucks. I am writing this cover letter to let you know that I welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss one of the positions available for truck drivers at Wholesome Foods.

I'm available at your convenience any afternoon between 2:00 and 4:00 pm.. Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 so we can arrange a date and time that works for you.
