Schneider Dedicated truck drivers get home weekly or more — typically on the same days each week. Pulling freight for one Dedicated customer means you can develop a routine whether you choose a full-time or part-time truck driving opportunity. You’ll leave home about the same time each week, travel on familiar lanes at predictable times, then return home on schedule. This setup allows you to make plans with your family and friends. They’ll be happy to know they can count on you to be home when you say you’ll be there.
Schneider’s Dedicated freight base includes Fortune 500 companies and some of the largest retailers in the U.S. You’ll never have to worry about having enough freight to keep you moving — there’s merchandise to deliver year-round. You can expect to average up to 2,500 miles per week, depending on account.
“Schneider has a great business relationship with our customers. They've always kept me moving. Every customer has their slow periods, but Schneider has always found me something to keep me busy during those times.”
Schneider is also committed to growing its Dedicated freight base. We are regularly landing new accounts across the U.S., creating more opportunities in more areas.
Schneider not only boasts a huge Dedicated freight base, but also a diverse one. Choose an account with dry van, reefer, flatbed or other specialty freight, or do a little bit of everything on Schneider’s National Dedicated Fleet. Instead of driving for one customer, National Dedicated Fleet drivers support new business start-ups, provide surge support and cover for drivers on vacation around the country. It’s the perfect combination of consistency and variety.
It’s basic trucking math: consistent miles + consistent freight = consistent paychecks. Running steady freight to one primary customer means there won’t be any unpleasant surprises when payday arrives. Schneider Dedicated truck drivers average $45,000 - $70,000 a year, depending on account. In addition to your base pay, you’ll have the opportunity to earn performance pay for driving safely each week and have access to unlimited referral bonuses.
National Dedicated Fleet drivers who travel the country filling in on a variety of accounts enjoy reliable base pay that regularly increases, plus the potential for account-specific additional pay.
Working with one customer gives Schneider Dedicated truck drivers a sense of ownership and pride. Instead of dealing with dozens of people over the course of a week, you’ll work directly with the ones who have the answers and make the decisions. You’ll load and unload at familiar places and work with familiar people — allowing you to develop valuable relationships.
“The great thing about being on a Dedicated account is that you get to know your shippers and your receivers. You get a good rapport with them. They know you; you get to know them. And they know when you come in. A lot of them will call you by name. To me, that means a lot.”
Schneider’s number one core value is Safety First and Always. One of the ways we reinforce that message is by offering the best training in the industry. All of our drivers go through paid orientation to make sure they are ready to hit the road. But the training doesn’t stop after your first few days with Big Orange. We continually work with you throughout your career to keep you on top of your game.
Schneider offers tuition reimbursement to recent driving school graduates. Check out our list of preferred truck driving schools and begin your journey to Schneider today.
