What a truck driver takes to work - Plus Great Product Choices

A truck driver can work up to 15 hours a day with a driving time of 9 hrs or 10 hours twice a week, this is a long time to be in a truck, Rest breaks are essential to make sure a driver is not tired when at the wheel of an HGV truck.

A truck driver must pack his or her bag before a shift with items to get them through the day.

With this in mind, a good work bag is important for truck driving, a holdall work bag that is wide enough to stay where you place it, plus plenty of internal space and pockets for items you need to keep separated like tacho printouts, gloves, keys or a wallet.

So let’s take a look at British Trucking’s top choices for What a truck driver takes to work!

Work Bags

Choosing a work bag really depends upon the type of truck driving you have, a driver who drives a truck but goes home after his or her shift would prefer a smaller work bag than a truck driver who travels long distances possibly sleeping in the cab on nights out.

We have selected some amazing bags that would be perfect for all types of truck drivers.
