Reasons to be a Regional truck driver at Schneider:

Local Dispatch

Schneider may be one of the largest truckload carriers in North America, but it doesn’t feel that way to our Regional drivers. You’ll enjoy easy access to local dispatchers. They’re located right in your area — meaning they’re familiar with the weather conditions and the traffic patterns. This setup gives Schneider Regional truck drivers the advantages of a small trucking company, plus the benefits of a large, stable one.

Regional Truck Driver, Gerald

“We all have driver numbers, but we are actually treated as people. You never have the feeling that you’re just a number. The group — especially the business leaders that you deal with — they treat you very well and they are very personable.”

Home Time

Regional truck driving is a great option for a driver looking for stable, predictable home time. After all, driving close to home makes it easier to get there more often. We offer a variety of configurations that help.  Schneider Regional truck drivers maximize both home time and pay:

  • Home weekly staying 750 miles from home
  • Central 24 states with no Northeast driving
  • Western 11 states
  • Northeast region

Our great freight base also gives us the ability to offer flexible home time schedules. Whether you want to drive full-time or part-time, we’ll work with you to find the right opportunity with the right home time option for you and your family.

Regional Truck Driver, Brad

“The home time is great, but there’s also a lot of flexibility in what Schneider offers. They have so many different options — whatever your interest is you can pursue it.”

Steady Freight

You don’t need to drive across the country to get big miles. With the largest freight base in the industry, it’s safe to say that Schneider has plenty of short-haul freight to move in your region. You’ll rack up miles and money, moving mostly drop-and-hook loads with 95% no-touch freight. And you’ll do it all close to home.

Bigger Money, Better Benefits

Consistent freight and predictable miles make for paychecks and earnings expectations you can count on. In fact, solo inexperienced Regional mileage rates, for example, have increased 10% in the last two years alone. That means you can earn $37,000 - $67,000, depending on experience and location. In addition to your base pay, you’ll have the opportunity to earn performance bonuses and have access to unlimited referral bonuses up to $3,000. Schneider drivers also enjoy valuable benefits like medical insurance, dental and vision coverage, vacation days and a 401(k) program with company match.

Continual Training

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. 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.

Schneider offers driving school or refresher course tuition reimbursement. Check out our list of preferred truck driving schools and begin your journey to Schneider today.
