Have you ever bought furniture, carpeting, exercise equipment or appliances online? A new generation of consumers is, but good luck finding a parcel company that can execute that delivery.
These new e-commerce buying habits are fueling new types of Straight Truck and LTL driving jobs, and Schneider is ahead of the curve — particularly after acquiring established e-commerce carrier Watkins & Shepard in 2016.
New Straight Truck and Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) Driving Jobs
With the acquisition and growth since then, Schneider now has 28 terminals as part of our first-to-final-mile delivery network. Launch into a bright future, and join a trendsetter with one of these new driving jobs hauling home furnishings and over-dimensional goods:
Featured Job: Team LTL Driving Jobs
This is as good as it gets for Team drivers.
LTL typically implies multi-stop, hands-on freight, but not for Schneider’s LTL Teams.
Rather, a Team LTL driver with Schneider is more like a Full Truckload (FTL) experience, hauling 53-foot trailers filled with LTL freight, typically terminal to terminal or lane to lane, where local drivers handle the final-mile portion.
It’s the ultimate Team option: premium lanes, highest earning potential and almost never touching freight or talking to customers.
- Big money – up to $0.58 per mile — paid on all routed Team miles
- Big miles – typically 5,000-6,000 miles per week, with many closed-loop configurations with very little wait time
- No-touch freight – most of it drop-and-hook over-dimensional freight
- Newest equipment – 98 percent automated transmissions; a new Team truck spec designed around driver comfort
- Home time – typically out 3-4 weeks, but lane-to-lane setup may allow 34-hour resets at home several times during tour
- Facility network – in addition to 28 LTL terminals, get access to Schneider’s nationwide operating center facility network with added driver amenities
Solo LTL Driving Jobs – not your typical LTL
Schneider’s solo LTL opportunities are unique within the industry as well, hauling over-dimensional freight to and from our LTL terminals and customer or home locations. Highlights:
- Over-the-Road – dedicated lanes, averaging 2,500-3,000 miles a week
- Regional – out and back, home weekly, high stop-off pay
- Short Line – home multiple times per week, higher accessorial and stop-off pay
- Local – home daily, stay within 250 miles of terminal, hourly pay plus overtime
Straight Truck Driving Jobs – No CDL needed
Home delivery options offer a great alternative to drivers who don’t have a Class A CDL and/or want to engage in more of a direct customer service role. What you can expect:
- Home every day and no CDL required
- High hourly pay with overtime potential
- Haul multi-stop, over-dimensional freight directly to a customer’s home or business
- Drive a box truck, then unload, unpackage and install the product
If You’re an LTL Driver, This is Just the Beginning
Consumer demand for home delivery of over-dimensional products continues to grow at a rate of about 7 percent per year (A.T. Kearney and Statistica), and while other companies build an infrastructure from scratch, Schneider is ready now — with a new breed of jobs for drivers and a new service offering for customers.
