Team drivers got a raise to 50 cpm as of May 2nd. With mileage bonuses and hazmat/doubles cert. it's possible to make 60 cpm now. Something to look into for team drivers who are considering companies.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

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

Wow! Those are pretty huge numbers. Very huge in fact. Considering a team can normally turn 20,000 - 25,000 miles per month that's some serious dough.

Incredible numbers looks like a few companies will start looking at raising them as well. Once one good company raises there scale other good company's follow! Thanks for the update.

It would be awesome to see solo driver pay go up a little more too. I'm pretty happy with what I make now but more is always better.

I'm not under contract because I was a 2 day refresher I was not required to sign a contract. My brother whom I team with is under contract and we are just about half way done with those miles. I love this company and would recommend it to anyone. I would also recommend any trucking company because this industry is specifically performance based, that's what I love about it .
