Team

What is Team truck driving?

Team driving is when two drivers take turns driving the same truck. It may not be the first driving job you think of, but for over 1,000 drivers at Schneider, it’s the best one. Why? Customers pay more to keep high-value freight moving, so we pay Team drivers more and give them the newest equipment to deliver it. The best loads = the best lanes = the best miles = the best money, all while road-tripping with a friend or loved one.

Why choose Team driving?

  • Biggest money and miles
    Biggest money and miles

    Because the wheels keep rolling on, the money keeps rolling in. Some Team jobs pay based on the miles you drive individually, while some split the total miles to the truck — either way, these jobs offer the highest earning potential in the fleet.

  • Premium loads and equipment

    Haul the best, and drive the best. Teams get the best freight — 98 percent no-touch and 75 percent drop-and-hook. Plus, our elite Team-spec’d trucks average only 8 months old.

  • Companionship

    Truck driving doesn’t have to be lonely. Sharing the road with a co-driver is a difference-maker for people from every walk of life: military Battle Buddies, spouses, empty nesters, driving school classmates, friends escaping the corporate grind and family members.

Schneider Dedicated Truck Drivers

Dedicated

Choice lanes

Schneider’s Dedicated drivers haul freight for one primary customer. As a Team, you’ll get the best loads that customer has to offer and optimized routes to deliver on.

Each Dedicated account features different freight characteristics (dry van, reefer, etc.), pay packages (mileage, load pay, accessorials, etc.) and home time (typically on a set schedule), but rest assured, you’ll be able to get more done as a Team than you ever could as a Solo driver.

Schneider LTL Truck Drivers

LTL

Terminal-to-Terminal

Schneider’s Less-Than-Truckload division is our First-to-Final Mile business offering. The “Final Mile” part is what most people think of with LTL — multi-stop freight. But it’s the “First Mile” part our Teams service, hauling full truckloads of LTL freight between terminals. That means long hauls and quick drop-offs for these high-mileage jobs.

Our Team LTL drivers get paid on every mile the truck moves, with the opportunity to touch $90,000 per year in one of the highest earning opportunities in Schneider’s fleet, with $100 per week extra for every week out over two that you stay out.

Schneider Over the Road Truck Drivers

Tanker

Liquid loads

Schneider’s Tanker division is an established leader in the liquid bulk and specialty chemical transportation industry. Team jobs aren’t always available within it, but when they are, it’s as good as it gets.

Tanker drivers get paid more for an elite skill set, and Team drivers earn more because they can cover more miles together. Combine the two, and you can make bank — up to $.58 per mile with performance pay and up to $72,000 per year each with accessorial pay.
