What is Team truck driving?

Team driving is when two drivers take turns driving the same truck. Customers pay more to keep high-value freight moving, so we pay over 1,000 Schneider Team drivers more (many drivers exceed $90,000) and give them the newest equipment to deliver it (average Team fleet age is 12 months). The best loads = the best lanes = the best miles = the best money, all while road-tripping with a friend or loved one.

Van Truckload

Elite long-haul

Schneider’s Van Truckload division boasts the most Team driving opportunities in the company. Drivers haul primarily high-value or time-sensitive loads in standard 53-foot dry van trailers, with an elite truck spec for teams that features automated transmissions.

Van Truckload Teams at Schneider crisscross the United States, averaging 1,100 miles per haul and 5,000-6,000 miles per week.

Team drivers at Schneider earn up to $.57 per mile starting pay based on your individual driving, plus up to $.04 per mile in weekly performance pay, automatic $.01 per mile annual increase and an additional $.01 per mile when both team partners have a hazmat endorsement. That means top Team drivers earn up to $96,000 per year, with an average Team driver exceeding $71,000.

Dedicated

Superior 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.

Our top Dedicated Team driver eclipsed $103,000, with the average across all Dedicated Team drivers approaching $65,000.

Why choose Team?

  • undefined

    Biggest money and miles

    Because the wheels keep rolling on, the money keeps rolling in, giving you the highest earning potential in the fleet. You and your partner will get paid half the miles generated by the truck at your individual rate of pay. Many Team drivers surpass $90,000 per year.
  • Premium loads and equipment

    Haul the best, and drive the best. Teams get the best freight – 98% no-touch and 75% drop-and-hook. Plus, our elite Team-spec’d trucks average only 12 months old, with automated transmissions, optimized idle, an upgraded driver’s seat and satellite radio with a company-paid subscription.

    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.
