Hey guys, im still in the preparation stages of trucking, and need some information. Through my own research, i realized most companies seem to pay .12cpm and i guess the 32, 34 cpm's are just sweet talk. Am i right? As a new driver what was you solo start pay?

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

Are you doing research on a Windows 98 computer? Where did you get those numbers? Most pay .30 or more CR England being the lowest at somewhere around .28 and .14 for teams. Teams get paid for all miles (there miles and Co drivers) so naturally they are paid a little less. At swift anything 500 miles or more is .36. I can't explain the whole sliding scale but another example is a short load like 25 miles is 25 dollars plus .50 a mile.

What He said. The lowest pay I have heard of is Carolina Cargo. They are mainly a second chance Company hiring Drivers with Felonies and other Situations most other Companies won't touch. Teams I believe get .30 per mile to the Truck. Split between the Drivers, and Solo around .20. Who is offering .12 ????

Florida Freight. They're a third chance company. Team drivers are paid .06 cpm , but they split the miles....

They also lease, but require the title to your home as a security deposit.

2500 miles per week at .12 cpm. Hmmmmmm.......pretty easy math..........$300 per week gross........$225.00 take home...........you could ALMOST live on that for a week on the road. And this "Company" actually has Drivers that work for them???????? Wait until the Walmart Drivers Class Action Lawyers catch wind of this!!!

Stevens Transport pays 30 CPM. 12 CPM is scary. You sure that's not 12 dollars per hour as a local driver?
