Roehl Transport Dispatching Policies

Can a new driver run regional or dedicated right after school?
  • While not guaranteed, many drivers are able to move into a regional or dedicated position immediately after training. This depends entirely on the demand for any given area. Most drivers run the OTR division for at least a few months.
Will there be any NYC? How soon would a new solo driver be expected to go there?
  • Probably not. Very few loads go into NYC. If you do get one, you’ll be paid extra.
Are you forced dispatch? Is the driver given any options for different loads?
  • Yes, company drivers are forced dispatched to ensure maximum mileage and profitability.

Roehl Transport Home Time Opportunities

Roehl offers many different flexible home time packages and can depend on the fleet a driver is on.

National Fleets
  • If out 10 days, you're home 2 days.
  • If out 11 - 17 days, you're home 3 days.
  • Stay out longer and earn up to 7 days off.
Regional Fleets
  • Regional Fleet drivers are typically home weekly.
  • You can expect to be home 24 to 48 hours weekly, usually under a load.

80% of the time, regional fleet drivers are typically home 34 to 48 hours in a seven-day period.

Roehl Transport Home Time Plus™ Opportunities

7-On/7-Off Fleet
  • Exclusively from Roehl, our 7-On/7-Off Fleet drivers drive seven days and then they are home for seven days at a time. If you choose a 7-On/7-Off Fleet, you’ll have 26 weeks a year off. You must be fully rested prior to dispatch. Space in the 7-On/7-Off Fleets may be limited in some areas of the country.
7/4-7/3 Fleet
  • Getting more miles is a key feature of our 7/4-7/3 Fleets. When you join a 7/4-7/3 Fleet, you’ll drive seven days, then be home four days, then you’ll drive seven days followed by three days of home time. That’s an average of 120 days off and mileage goals between 95,000 and 105,000 per year. You must be fully rested prior to dispatch, and space in the 7/4–7/3 Fleets may be limited in some areas of the country.
14/7 Fleet
  • Roehl’s 14/7 Fleets are unique options that combine the mileage goals of a 7/4-7/3 Fleet (between 95,000 and 105,000 per year) with the extended home time of a 7/7 Fleet. You’ll drive fourteen days and then be home seven days. Space in our 14/7 Fleets is available in limited areas, and you must be fully rested prior to dispatch.

Roehl Transport Company Policies

Do you allow pets?
  • No pets are allowed.
What is the company's rider policy?
  • Drivers may have one rider who is either a spouse or a related child of theirs 10 years of age or older. All riders must be approved by Roehl and insurance documents / fees must be paid yearly.

TruckingTruth's View On Roehl Transport Dispatching Policies

Roehl is incredibly flexible when it comes to home time, regional, dedicated, and local driving opportunities. Most drivers transition from OTR to a more local type of position, although many do choose to remain OTR as that's what they enjoy.

If you're interested in the more liberal home time policy such as 14 on 7 off, you will need to reside within close range of a Roehl terminal or dropyard and you will slip seat trucks (meaning each time you go out, you'll be issued a different truck). The closer you reside to a terminal, the more custom fit they can make your home time.

The rider policy is fairly strict as only a related spouse or related child can ride with you (10yrs or older), and there are no pets allowed on any company equipment.

Do you have a leasing program, and will I be persuaded or incentivized to lease?
  • A leasing and Lease-To-Own program is available for those who choose to run as an independent contractor, but drivers are not pressured to to join the independent contractor program. The lease to own program is attractive because there is little risk and Roehl offers business support to enable your success.
What divisions do you have? (local, dedicated, regional, tanker, flatbed, reefer)
  • Roehl offers many different positions including local, dedicated, regional, flatbed, reefer, dry-van, and curtainside positions. To see which divisions are offered in your specific area, Roehl's website and enter your zip code.

What are your trucks governed at?
  • Max speed on the pedal: 63mph - Max speed on cruise control: 61mph
Do you have APU units?
