Schneider team drivers have the opportunity to earn an additional $.06 per mile (vs. solo drivers), have priority dispatch and enjoy 99 percent no-touch freight, according to Vice President Mike Hinz.
Schneider was recently designated a Top Paying Carrier by the National Transportation Institute, an independent research firm that benchmarks driver pay packages. In addition to a top-rated compensation package, Schneider drivers can count on a new industry-leading, in-cab technology platform that provides a commercial driver GPS directions system, access to the Internet and other features; and low-cost meals and laundry facilities at 22 operating centers. Team drivers also are assigned late model Volvo or Freightliner tractors.
"As our expedited freight business continues to grow, so does our need to hire more team drivers," noted Hinz.
Although not eligible for the sign-on bonus, Schneider will also help match solo drivers looking for a team partner.
