Truckers are the backbone of Transport Tycoon. We’ve developed a complex web of cargo materials that allow you to simply sell one at a time, or collect and combine cargoes in multi-point routes for maximum profit!
Be sure to ask around for helpful guides developed by the community. Oh, and we also have a custom radio station! We offer TruckersFM, available in the left-bottom-center area of the radio wheel.

Trucker - Trucking Level 1-15
Before doing trucking, you should read the “Getting Started Guide”. The Speedo Express has a trunk capacity equal to your own inventory capacity (30kg to 300kg)
Basic Process for Trucking Cargo
Go to the Cargo Seller to obtain your cargo, load as much as you can in your vehicle (Don't know how? visit the “Getting Started Guide”) and head to the Cargo Buyer to sell it!
|Trucking Cargo||Trucking Level Required|
|Tools||1 (1kg each)|
|Erasers||3 (3kg each)|
|Logs ➡ Sawdust||6 (60kg each)|
|Recycled Trash||9 (90kg each)|
|Toxic Waste||11 (110kg each)|
|Recycled Electronics||13 (130kg each)|
|Quarry Rubble||15 (150kg each)|
|Methamphetamine||17 (40kg each)|
Logs, Recycled Trash, Toxic Waste, Recycled Electronics, Quarry Rubble, and Methamphetamine are all part of more in-depth trucking routes. Make sure to have a look at the Advanced Cargo Routes section.
Logging is unlocked at level 6, this is the first type of trucking where there are multiple steps in the process.
You want to pick up Logs from the Logging Camp, take the Logs to the Sawmill to turn them into Sawdust or Planks. Both the Sawdust and the Planks can be sold at the LS Port Export or stored in Self Storages to be combined with other items
Recycled Materials Base Process
At level 9 you will unlock Recycled Trash, this can be picked up from the Recycling Center.
You want to take the Recycled Trash to the Sorting Facility to obtain three materials from it.
Plastic can be exported from the McKenzie Export.
Copper and Gold can be refined at the LS Foundry.
Refined Tin and Refined Aluminium are exported from the LS Port Export.
From here, the process will evolve allowing more materials and new combinations of materials. The more steps the process has, the more you will earn from it.
Item descriptions and exploration of the different locations should lead you on to new processes.
This is a flowchart showing one of the Level 13 Electronics processes:
Advanced Cargo Routes
A guide on advanced cargo, where to find them, craft them, sell them, and what you need for them.
Level 9 Trucking required for Recycled Trash - 90kg
Level 11 Trucking required for Toxic Waste - 110kg
Level 13 Trucking required for Recycled Electronics - 130kg
Level 15 Trucking required for Quarry Rubble - 150kg
Video guides for some of the trucking routes such as Batteries and Concrete can be found on the Youtube Tutorials page.
The following image is outdated and should only be looked at to get a general idea of how advanced trucking works. Prices and weights are no longer accurate and new routes have been introduced since.
Below is the flow chart for how to create batteries
|Level requirement/s||Name||Price||Capacity||Fuel||Top Speed in mph|
|LVL 1||$0||30kg to 300kg||70L (Petrol)||Unknown|
|Name||Price||Fuel||Top Speed in mph|
Semi-cabs can be bought from a car dealership or alternatively can be spawned at a few locations around the map. Examples include LSIA, Sandy Shores, and LS Docks.
Premium Trucking Routes
There are Currently 3 Tycoon Premium Trucking Routes.
Note: To see the Sell Icon you need Tycoon Premium and Lvl 100 Trucking
A new Route that just got added to the Game is the House Route. It uses every Advanced Trucking Route and all other Premium Trucking Routes and makes them to one ultimate Route
Trucking (Liberty City)
Trucking (Petrochemical) / (Military)
You need to do both routes to make Explosives which can be used to get other Trucking Cargo as shown below.
