What are your average miles per week/ month. Experience level, Years in business, Type of job.(OTR,Dedicated,etc). Lets be honest, no one is getting graded on this assignment!

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

2000 avg regional flatbed 3.5 months in business and experience

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Still too new to have any averages, bit I think last week I was near 3200 miles, this week I'll be closers to 2400.

I run refrigerated, and apparently, I'm western 11 lol. When I got hired, my recruiter told me it was going to be super regional , but I've been running everything west of Texas. That's fine though, I'll go wherever they need me to

4 months solo, OTR. Averaging 2800 miles. Best week over the last month was over 3200, worst was 2600.

Pull a reefer but seem to be hauling a lot of dry loads lately. Plus A LOT of beer too.

This summer I averaged about 2200 a week. This month I averaged around 1100.. I need to get to the Midwest or something these short runs with too much time in between are killing me.

Since I started at Roehl, final week of March, monthly average has been over 11,250 each month. Best week was near 3400 miles. The pay has been less than I'd anticipated, however....

9 months. I'm labeled a regional driver but I kinda do whatever. Right now I'm going to California. But I'd say I average between 2,000 to 3,200 a week. I'm usually anywhere from 9,500 to 11,000 per month

I got in a 1/4 mile at CDL school today. Offset parking and such. Our trailers are full of sailboat fuel also.
