The time it takes for a truck to leave a trucking hub depends on a number of factors, from the amount of time it spends in the port, the amount it can carry, and how much fuel it can take to get to the hub.
To make the calculations, I used a combination of the time a driver has to drive the vehicle, the fuel that it needs to get from a tank to a tank, the distance the truck has to travel, and the number of vehicles it can fit.
I then multiplied this by the average distance of trucks to get the average time it took to drive to the destination.
As you can see, it’s a long way from the average of 7.5 hours and 12 minutes that I find in the US.
The average time to get home varies from city to city, but is usually around 8 hours and 30 minutes, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
If you’re traveling to a big city, you might want to consider taking a longer bus ride to get there.
What do you think?
Does the average driver time really matter?
