The coronavirus pandemic has changed how many shippers think about their supply chains, and many shippers who rely on time-sensitive service or have high-value freight now realize the importance of having have professional, safe Team drivers.

Many of those shippers are turning to Schneider, which means that one of America’s largest team fleets is getting bigger to meet the need – and investing in team drivers even more. As new and existing customers forming Schneider's team freight base increase their spend, rate increases are being passed on to drivers.

New Team driver pay increase – earn up to $.61/mile

In late August, Schneider introduced a new team driver pay increase:

  • Experienced drivers (1+ years) earn $.04/mile more when starting with Schneider.
  • Inexperienced drivers (0-1 year) earn $.02/mile more when starting with Schneider.
  • Starting pay up to $.61/mile for experienced Team drivers.
  • Many Schneider Team drivers each earn over $90,000 per year.

New Team driver referral bonus increase

Schneider’s driver referral program always offers unlimited earning potential, but with teams in such high demand, we’ve increased the incentive for our company drivers to refer a formed team: $10,000 for the team ($5,000 per driver) when both drivers have one year or more of experience.
