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.

Video guides for some of the trucking routes such as Batteries and Concrete can be found on the Youtube Tutorials page.
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.

SD cards are a brand new item you can obtain in many different ways. The main use for SD cards is to unlock new trucking routes.
Ways To Obtain SD Cards
1. Prospecting (Prospecting) - To prospect simply go in game and find a white circle on the map, and press E to start prospecting. (Make sure you own a prospecting scanner.)
2. Daily Chests - This is another way of getting a SD Card. (To get your daily chests you can do /vote in game. It will redirect you to a page where you can vote via DISCORD (only if your account is linked on discord) or you can vote via STEAM)
3. Player To Player (Marketplace) - This is the easiest way to obtain encrypted SD Cards & decrypted SD Card Recipes. (Can only be done via marketplace as SD Cards are untradeable! )
How do SD Cards work
1. When you got a Encrypted SD Card you need to keep them in your Inventory.
2. Then go to the FIB Building. In the entrance area you will see a green Marker next to the Desk where you can decrypt SD-Cards (Start Scan), see what Secrets you have unlocked already (View learned Secrets) and check your current scan (Check Scan).
3. Choose "Start Scan" and choose the decrypting method. You can choose between the following options:
- Slow Scan (48h) = FREE
- Regular Scan (12h) = $200,000,000
- Fast Scan (4h) = $1,000,0000,000
4. After the scanning Time you should have the Decrypted SD Card in your Inventory. IF NOT: Go to the FIB Building again and choose "Check Scan"
5. If you want to learn the secret recipe of the SD Card you got choose it in your Inventory and hit "Unlock secret". You have learned the secret recipe now and the SD Card will disappear.
