Hi y'all . since I started being ranked at swift I've been at gold level think I was platinum one week after I got 3200 miles anyway to my question ; what are the requirements to be a diamond driver ( better loads and better miles ) sorry if this question has been asked before but I couldn't find the answer

The mileage requirements vary from account to account, but the structure is still the same.

Ranking is based off an average of the previous 8 weeks or so miles. If you log onto the driver portal and go to driver utilization you will see it there. Figured this out because I been platinum the past 2 weeks even though my home time week I only did 1500 miles. That extra 5 cents adds up when the bonus comes in. I missed out on a lot of money because I lost the rankings due to 2 backing accidents.

A sidenote, don't cherry pick your loads. We are lucky that we aren't forced dispatch but if a load can be done within reason you better do it. The better rapport you get with planners the better loads you will get. Planners in Denver know me because they usually are the ones that get me home and because of that i do local stuff for them.

It took me a year and a half till I saw a cross country run. Just know the more you do the better you will be , don't listen to the terminal rats.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Curious question from a bystander.

The 99.5% on-time deliveries. Does that get ruined say..If you got stuck in the big blizzard? Or only affected if it's drivers fault for missing a appointment?

You would have to make 199 out of 200 deliveries and pickups on time. Pretty much you'd have to never miss an appointment for a year.

Swift is pretty lenient on OTD. Your not considered late unless it's really totally your fault and or unpreventable.

Basically, the on time delivery is only affected if you get a "Service failure". There are a few different reasons you could end up with one. The basic rule of thumb is, if you are delayed due to a circumstance outside of your control (weather, accident on the highway, break down), as long as you send a macro 22 explaining the issue, you are covered. If the reason for being late is that you went out of route, or you run out of hours due to poor trip planning, that's when you're responsible.
