Haul freight for one primary customer, developing the relationships and routine that bring consistency to both your professional and personal life.Watch the video
Schneider Dedicated truck drivers get home weekly or more — typically on the same days each week. Pulling freight for one Dedicated customer means you can establish a routine whether you choose a full-time or part-time truck driving opportunity. Life as a Dedicated driver means you’ll leave home about the same time each week, travel on familiar lanes at predictable times, then return home on schedule. This setup allows you to make plans with your family and friends. They’ll be happy to know they can count on you to be home when you say you’ll be there.
Schneider’s Dedicated freight base includes many of the largest companies and retailers in the U.S. You’ll never have to worry about having enough freight to keep you moving — there’s merchandise to deliver year-round. You can expect to average up to 2,500 miles per week, depending on which account you choose.
Schneider not only boasts a huge Dedicated freight base, but also a diverse one — with opportunities for Team and solo drivers. Choose an account with dry van, reefer, flatbed or other specialty freight; no-touch freight or full loads; long-haul or multi-stop configurations — so many options to choose from.
Or, choose them all, doing a little of everything on Schneider’s National Dedicated Fleet. Instead of driving for one customer, National Dedicated Fleet drivers support new business start-ups, provide surge support and cover for drivers on vacation around the country. It’s the perfect combination of consistency and variety.
It’s basic trucking math: consistent miles + consistent freight = consistent paychecks. Running steady freight to one primary customer means there won’t be any unpleasant surprises when payday arrives. Schneider Dedicated truck drivers average $45,000 - $70,000 a year, depending on account, location and experience. In addition to your base pay, you’ll have the opportunity to earn performance pay for driving safely each week and have access to unlimited referral bonuses.
National Dedicated Fleet drivers who travel the country filling in on a variety of accounts enjoy reliable base pay that regularly increases, plus the potential for account-specific additional pay.
Schneider’s number one core value is Safety First and Always. One of the ways we reinforce that message is by offering the best training in the industry. All of our drivers go through paid orientation to make sure they are ready to hit the road, including account-specific training as necessary. But the training doesn’t stop after your first few days with Big Orange. We continually work with you throughout your career to keep you on top of your game.
