Above Average Earnings
and no "Up to $..." spin 

Ever been told you can make "up to" a per mile rate and found out the real pay is less? We tell you the averages so you have an honest reference to the income you can expect.

  • Mileage Base PayAnnual Average of $1.​​37 Per Mile (based on the average earnings on all dispatched miles - loaded and empty - of all drivers in this division.

Every mile you turn costs you money. That's why we pay all loaded and empty dispatched miles and also have a mileage bonus program that continues to increase the longer you are with us.

  • Mileage Bonus Program: $.03 per mile from 32,500 - 65,000 miles and $.04 on 65,000+ miles for the first year.  Each year thereafter, an annual mileage bonus is paid on all miles over 65,000, increasing ​based on years of service and as follows: ​year 2-4 is $.10; year 5-9 is $.13; year 10-14 is $.16; and year 15 and beyond is $.19.

Our owner operators benefit from fuel surcharge paid on ALL MILES (loaded and deadhead), a national fuel discount program that rivals the industry’s largest carriers’, and light dry-van loads that average 15,000 – 25,000 lbs.
  • Fuel Discount Program: The average in the past 12 months was $.​32 per gallon off the pump price, which means several thousand dollars saved per year. Fuel discounts at TA, Pilot, Flying J, and others.
  • Fuel Surcharge: Provided based on current D.O.E. National Average, we have the highest surcharge for van type operations in the industry. Example: at $2.35, it is $.20, and at $3.35, it is $.38. Besides being the highest surcharge, we also pay fuel surcharge on all dispatched miles (loaded and empty).

Our typical freight is dry-van shipments averaging between 15,000 - 25,000 pounds, saving our drivers fuel and wear and tear on their equipment.

Fuel Surcharge

We pay fuel surcharge on all dispatched miles (loaded and deadhead), and our fuel surcharge increases faster than most (every $.05 instead of every $.10 like most carriers). We also pay a higher fuel surcharge amount than others. See the examples below.


Fuel Discount Program

Our drivers enjoy a fuel discount program with reductions comparable or better than large fleet carriers. They can easily see an average savings at the pump of $50 - $85 per fill up, all depending on the size of their fuel tank and how much they are putting in. In some cases, they see discounts as high as $200+ on a single fill up​! This amounts to huge savings in operational cost​.
