How Team Drivers Make More Money Than Solo Drivers - Roadmaster Drivers School

A lot of factors go into figuring how much money team drivers can make. Things like carrier rates for team drivers, specific company bonuses, the experience of the drivers, and the type of materials being hauled will be considered. While a single answer won’t cut it, we can tell you about the ways team drivers can earn more money than solo drivers. The best way to make the most out of your trucking career, though, is to stay knowledgeable and ask questions about wages with a carrier before signing on. What is Team Driving? It’s pretty much what it sounds like. A truck driver and another truck driver agree to sign on with a carrier to make runs together. But why is driving with a partner an option? Team driving is all about keeping the truck in motion and the goods moving. When there are two drivers in a truck, one can take the wheel while the other relaxes or does whatever they do in their off-time. This keeps the freight moving along the highways and productivity at a high level. Solo drivers are required to stop and take time off to sleep before they can resume work. Team driving solves that issue, and the reward is both drivers are paid for the combined mileage. The carrier wage is applied to the total mileage driven between the truck drivers, and is split between both. Many times carriers will offer sign-on bonuses for team drivers or will reward referrals (if we assume that you referred your team driver). Team drivers can average $100,000 to $150,000 and still earn sign-on bonuses of up to $10,000. To read more, click here: http://www.roadmaster.com/blog/team-drivers-make-money-solo-drivers/
