Hey guys havnt been on here in awhile but I wanted to try something new and wanted some of your advice ok here goes i wanted to try a dedicated route and us express has a Wal-Mart dedicated account that sounded pretty good with being home weekly and picking up at a dc which would add to some consistency in the areas I know well which id love but not sure what the weekly pay would be like or really what to expe t in General, I asked my recruiter but I take what they say with a grain of salt but wanted to know what all you good folks have to say about that account or any experiences or any info would be good.

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."

G Town does Wal-Mart dedicated for swift. He wouldn't be able to help with us express pay info, but do a search on this site for "G Town Wal-Mart dedicated". He has a ton of great info

Jack, welcome back.

As Rob indicated (thank you) do a search on my name and Walmart. It will give you a good intro on what to expect. The operation is basically the same for each of Walmart's transportation partners; the pay however will differ. Depending on the territory it's reasonable to expect 15-20% greater CPM because the mileage will be less due to multiple live unload stops in a typical dispatched load (up to 5). In addition to store and Sam's Club deliveries, 25% of the time a vendor backhaul is assigned as the last stop. These are predominantly drop-and-hook.

I run NorthEast; our new drivers start at 46cpm, $20 for each dispatch, and $15 per stop after the first. $10-15 for each extra trailer move at a store. We can also earn up to an additional 7cpm for performance and safety after the first three months of service. On average we receive a 1cpm bump for each year of service. Not necessarily 100% of what you can expect, but at least gives you a conceptual understanding of possible pay structure.

Ask the recruiter if it's possible to have a one on one conversation with the USX terminal manager in order to understand the pay. Hopefully this works out for you, really great gig for the right person.

Good luck.


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.


Cents Per Mile

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


Drop and hook means the driver will drop one trailer and hook to another one.

In order to speed up the pickup and delivery process a driver may be instructed to drop their empty trailer and hook to one that is already loaded, or drop their loaded trailer and hook to one that is already empty. That way the driver will not have to wait for a trailer to be loaded or unloaded.
