If you’re considering applying for a job at Schneider, you’ve probably been wondering, “How many cents per mile does Schneider pay?”
Although this is one of the most popular questions related to truck driver pay, it’s not necessarily the best one to ask when trying to fully understand your pay as a truck driver.

You want to know exactly how many cents per mile Schneider pays?
$0.39, $0.50, $.70 or just about anything in between.
The cents per mile a driver makes varies based on where they live, what type of freight they haul
and how much experience they have. That’s why it’s so important to look at the entire pay package with each driving job you explore.
For example …
- An over-the-road Van Truckload driver can rack up massive miles but may make a lower cents per mile.
- A regional Dedicated driver could drive fewer miles but get paid extra for doing live unloads and shorthauls.
- A local Tanker driver is rewarded for the built-in accessorial pay that comes with hauling that type of freight.
- A regional Intermodal driver primarily gets paid by the load and by the mile.
So, instead you should ask:
What will be my annual earnings in this specific driving position with my experience level?
Find this out, and you will get a much clearer answer and will be on your way to success.
