TruckersTrucking emoji.png 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,Simulator Radio and UpBeat Radio available in the left-bottom-center area of the radio wheel.

Getting started

If this is your first time trucking, it's recommended to read the Getting Started Guide for essential basic information.
  • Head to the Job Center JobCenter.png and select the Trucker job.
  • Visit the Car Dealership Car Dealer.png to purchase the Speedo Express or a combination of a semi-cab (truck) and trailer.
    • The Speedo Express is free and has a trunk capacity equal to your own inventory capacity from 30kg to 300kg.

Vehicles

Trucking requires a semi-cab (truck) and trailer to store cargo in. Semi-cabs can be bought from a car dealership Car Dealer.png or alternatively can be spawned at a few locations around the map. Examples include LSIA, Sandy Shores, and LS Docks. Players that are short on cash can begin with the free Speedo Express. The trunk capacity of the Speedo scales with the players' Strength level.

Basic Commercial Routes

You start a trucking route by picking up cargo from one of the following cargo sellers. Go to the cargo seller to obtain your cargo, load as much as you can in your vehicle and then head to a Cargo Buyer that accepts the cargo to sell it. Logs, Recycled Trash, Toxic Waste, Recycled Electronics and Quarry Rubble are all part of more in-depth commercial trucking routes. Make sure to have a look at the Advanced Cargo Routes section.

Cargo Weight Location Requirements2
Tools1 1kg Cargo Buyer: Tools Level 1
Erasers1 3kg Cargo Buyer: Erasers Level 3
Logs 60kg Logging Camp Level 6
Recycled Trash 90kg Recycling Center Level 9
Toxic Waste 110kg Elysian Island Waste Deposit Level 11
Recycled Electronics 130kg Electronics Store Level 13
Quarry Rubble 150kg Quarry Level 15
1. Erasers and Tools can only be placed in the Speedo Express or Mk1, Mk2, Mk3, or Mk4 Trailers. All other trailers will show an error when adding to trunk
2. The trucking level required indicates the level at which the map blip is unlocked. You can actually take any of these items to your trunk at any trucking/strength level.

Logging

Logging is unlocked at level 6, this is the first type of trucking where there are multiple steps in the process. You want to:

Recycled Materials Base Process

At level 9 you will unlock Recycled Trash, this can be picked up from the Recycling Center. You want to:

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:

Level13Electronoics.png

Advanced Cargo Routes

Logs, Recycled Trash, Toxic Waste, Recycled Electronics, Quarry Rubble, and Methamphetamine are part of more in-depth trucking routes that allow you to create advanced items such as houses.

Cargo Sellers:

Cargo Weight Location Requirements
Logs 60kg Logging Camp Level 6
Recycled Trash 90kg Recycling Center Level 9
Toxic Waste 110kg Elysian Island Waste Deposit Level 11
Recycled Electronics 130kg Electronics Store Level 13
Quarry Rubble 150kg Quarry Level 15

The advanced trucking routes can be complex and overwhelming. There are several video guides for some of the trucking routes such as Batteries and Concrete that can be found on the Youtube Tutorials page. There are also calculators available for advanced trucking to help you such as a Trucking Calculator and Trucking Cargo Mastersheet. Note that these may be outdated. You can also find sheets in #tycoon-spreadsheets on Discord.

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. This overview will be updated later in 2022.

The House route uses every Advanced Trucking Route and all other Premium Trucking Routes and makes them to one ultimate Route. It requires Tycoon Premium and Lvl 100 Trucking to complete. Houses can be made at the House Construction Site. House Route.png

Trucking Sub-types

Some trucking sub-routes require a trucking sub-job as well. These jobs can be acquired at the Trucking HQ Trucking HQ.png or in the case of the Liberty City sub-job, any Job CentersJobCenter.png in Liberty City. There are several trucking sub-jobs available:

  • Commercial
  • Liberty City
  • Refrigerated
  • Military
  • Petrochemical
  • Illegal
  • Master

It is also possible to change sub-job by using a Trucker's PDA. They can be obtained by buying it on the Marketplace, buying from a player and is also a possible reward from a Treasure Chest (Daily).
The master sub-job is obtained at 1,000,000 (1M) trucking experience, and allows you to see all (sub-)trucking transformers at once.

SD-Cards

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.
