Team Owner-Operators

Reasons to be a Team owner-operator at Schneider:

Steady Freight

Schneider has one of the largest team fleets and team freight bases in the industry. You’ll haul 95% no-touch freight for America’s Fortune 500 companies, racking up miles and money as you travel the country. For Percentage owner-operators, that variety of freight gives you the flexibility to choose loads that fit your business needs.  For Mileage owner-operators, it means we’ll handle your load assignments and optimize your utilization, making sure to maximize your revenue potential.

Better Miles

Get ready to run. With access to Schneider’s broad freight base, you can expect to be moving year-round.  On the Mileage lease, team owner-operators can average 5,000-6,000 miles per week.  On the Percentage lease, you control your own destiny, planning your own tours and maximizing your profits.

“As far as enjoyment of the job, [owner-operator] is the way to go, especially the Percentage Lease program. I was thinking of just running a couple more years, retiring and saying that’s it, but now since we can go where we want to go and do what we want to do, they just extended how long we plan to drive.”
- Terry and Sue Strauer, Team Owner-Operator

Bigger Money

Each mile you run puts money in the bank for your business. Schneider Team owner-operators bring home bigger settlements with our exceptional lease compensation packages.

Purchase Power

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, tires, maintenance, insurance and more. We also provide free American Truck Business Services (ATBS) to you during the first six months of your lease.

Team Sponsorship

We think owner-operators make great driver trainers. If you have a potential team partner interested in driving with you, but he or she lacks driving experience, take advantage of Schneider’s Owner-Operator Team Sponsorship Program. You can train your team partner once you have leased with Schneider for at least 90 days and have successfully completed the Training Engineer course. To qualify, your team partner must hold a valid CDL and must have graduated from truck driving school within the last three months.

No truck? No problem!
