More good news for drivers is the fact that Jung Express is part of a group of expedited carriers who collectively have an expansive customer base spread across the United States and Canada. This membership, along with Jung's own nationwide customers, is a benefit to drivers because the company can eliminate lengthy layovers and find shipments coming out of delivered-to areas. This allows drivers to keep rolling with less deadhead miles—an efficiency that pays off right from the start.
