Ask truck driving students if they’d like to double their income potential, and you can guess the answer. But, if you asked them how to do it, they probably wouldn’t realize how easy it can be. Keep reading to learn more about team driving pay!
A quick look at industry-wide salaries indicates that simply teaming up with another driver could fill their wallets about twice as fast! On average, new solo drivers make $35,000 – $40,000 per year. But, that figure jumps to up to $58,000 for HAZMAT endorsed team drivers at U.S. Xpress.
In February 2018, U.S. Xpress launched a new incentive program for team drivers that helps them earn up to $50,000 in bonuses. This program was created in response to faster shipping and delivery demands by large retailers such as Amazon and Walmart.
This program also offers team drivers new trucks, minimal downtime for service, and a desirable CPM. These benefits are in addition to medical, dental, vision, and a 401(k) match.
Eric Fuller, CEO of U.S. Xpress says, “Recruiting and retaining team drivers in today’s highly competitive job market is not just about pay. It’s also about lifestyle. This is why U.S. Xpress specifically designed the new bonus program as a way for new and current team drivers to make more money, but also earn up to four weeks of paid vacation each year.”
Many other major carriers offer incentive programs for team drivers. Learn how one couple found fulfillment in team driving with Schneider National, and are now traveling together across the U.S.!
