Solo truck driving jobs

What is Solo truck driving?

Solo driving is what most people think of when they think of truck driving: One driver in the truck, hitting the open road to haul freight. It’s a dream come true for those who can’t stand a boss over their shoulder. You’ll always have a great support network at Schneider, but if you crave independence and want to make your own decisions, solo driving is for you. Chart your course with the widest variety of driving options.

Schneider Solo Van Truckload Truck Driving Jobs

Van Truckload

The open road

Schneider’s largest division features the broadest range of opportunities for Solo drivers. Haul dry-van freight in standard 53-foot trailers to a huge variety of customers. Every day will be different in this maximum-adventure format, and there’s always freight to haul year-round with Schneider’s massive network.

There are literally dozens of home time arrangements to choose from, ranging from home throughout the week staying within 750 miles of home to being out for weeks at a time hitting all 48 states. Whatever you settle into, you’ll appreciate big miles and mileage-based pay.

Schneider Solo Dedicated Truck Driving Jobs

Dedicated

The consistency you crave

Schneider’s Dedicated division gives you the opportunity to haul for one primary customer. That means you get to know the freight, the routes, the schedule and even the people you’ll interact with at the customer you will primarily haul for.

Predictability and consistency is the name of the game within Dedicated, so you can know what to expect in everything from the day-to-day to your weekly pay. Plus, with a huge variety of customers to choose from (e.g. dry van, reefer, flatbed), you can find one with the schedule and freight characteristics that work for you.

Schneider Solo Intermodal Truck Drivers

Intermodal

The roads and the rails

Schneider’s Intermodal division involves hauling freight to and from the rail yards, typically near cities with large rail hubs. You’ve never seen a train pull up to a store location because that’s where you come in, and about 70 percent of your loads will be drop-and-hook.

Your proximity to the rail hubs also means you’ll stay closer to your home and get there more often. Regional and Local positions offer a unique blend of mileage and per-load pay that rewards you for the work you do.

Schneider Solo Tanker Truck Driving Jobs

Tanker

The liquid loads

Schneider’s Tanker division offers the highest earning potential for Schneider Solo drivers, as you haul liquid loads with an established leader in the specialty chemical transportation industry.

Because the freight is more specialized, you can earn up to $10,000 more than other driving jobs. Do the work with confidence after completing our industry-recognized paid Tanker training. This is your path to becoming an elite driver within an already-elite fleet.

Schneider Solo LTL Truck Driving Jobs

LTL

More than multi-stop

Schneider’s Less-Than-Truckload division represents our First-to-Final-Mile business, and Solo drivers can choose the “First Mile” (longer hauls with full truckloads of LTL freight to and from terminals) or “Final Mile” (multi-stop loads from terminals to their final destination).

As more people buy over-dimensional products online, the e-commerce landscape expands, and so do these driving opportunities. We bought LTL leader Watkins & Shepard in 2016 to grow into this space, and we’ve added our expertise to give you dynamic career options.

Schneider Straight Truck Driving Jobs

Straight Truck

No CDL required

Schneider’s Straight Truck opportunities offer daily home time from day one as you deliver freight in a box/delivery truck. Many of these positions do not even require a Class A CDL.

Rather than spending all your time on the road, these positions allow you to interact directly with customers making home deliveries of over-dimensional products. That more direct customer interaction is unique to this business segment, with a unique pay package custom designed around the work.
