Is Walmart dedicated for Schneider driver unload?

Pastor, I am a Walmart Grocery dedicated driver with Swift. Regardless of what company has the contract (be it Schneider, Swift, Crete, etc) with the specific WM DC, the work and process is basically the same. WM is a 24x7 operation, day runs and night runs. I'd be happy to review additional details if you want more information.

I did WalMart dedicated for Cr England out of sterling Illinois. Dc to store usually have a backhaul. No driver unload although it would be much faster lol. It was 32cpm with 15$ per stop after the first. Didn't have a check less than 700$ the time I was there. I enjoyed it so much that i asked Werner if they had any wm dedicated routes which they did. However "mostly dc to dc." Your day definitely goes alot faster especially with 3-4 stops.

Dedicated Route:

A driver or carrier who transports cargo between regular, prescribed routes. Normally it means a driver will be dedicated to working for one particular customer like Walmart or Home Depot and they will only haul freight for that customer. You'll often hear drivers say something like, "I'm on the Walmart dedicated account."

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

Sometimes it would be faster if we unloaded ourselves! On occasion I have been known to grab a pallet jack so I could keep moving.
