Build your business with a carrier who knows and understands the West. Make your move to Schneider.Search and Apply Owner-Operators
As a Regional owner-operator with Schneider, you’ll operate exclusively in the Western six states (California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Idaho). Enjoy support from regional dispatchers who know the area and your business. We’ll provide the tools to help you run your own business while giving you access to the extensive resources Schneider has to offer.
You don’t need to drive across the country to get great mileage for your business. With one of the largest freight bases in the industry, it’s safe to say that Schneider has plenty of short-haul freight to move in the West. You’ll rack up miles and money, hauling minimal-touch freight — and you’ll do it all within a six-state area of where you live.
Schneider Regional owner-operators have the best of both worlds: owning a truck and getting home frequently. Instead of running through 48 states, you’ll stick to six. Running your business that close to home means you’ll get there more often to enjoy the things that really matter.
Enjoy line haul rates that match your length of haul and operating region. Schneider Regional owner-operators benefit from higher compensation for shorter lengths of haul. You can average up to $145,000 in annual revenue. You’ll also have access to a West Coast-based fuel surcharge program and discounts at the pump through truck stop chains (save $.12-$.22 per gallon through negotiated corporate discounts), in addition to our fuel surcharge program.
Take advantage of Schneider’s buying power and boost your business’ bottom line. Through the Purchase Power Program, you’ll save thousands of dollars each year on fuel, tractors, tires, maintenance, insurance and more.
Schneider Finance offers low or no money down programs to help you purchase or upgrade your rig.
