For those interested or simply wanting to know what to expect for pay and mileage in the Roehl GYCDL program, I'm posting my check amounts and made a list of the weekly mileages over my first year of solo driving. I joined the GYDCL program on December 31st of 2018, and began driving solo on February 20th of 2019. I completed the required 120000 miles in the week ending February 1st of 2020. I am dry van national and my base rate of pay was 38.5cpm until November 28th when it was raised to 41cpm. I was not enrolled in Roehl's performance based plan during the time frame shown, and I did not separate out detention pay, short haul pay, live load pay, multiple stop pay, or inspection bonuses (but those were all minimal). All of the home times shown on the mileage sheet were 7 days with the exception of the first listed. Typically those 7 days spanned across two pay periods to avoid a very small pay check upon my first week back to work. As a side note, beginning on January 28th this year Roehl began paying address to address mileage instead of practical miles.

The pay will be similar for flatbed and refrigerated, but the miles for flatbed will be a good bit less. I'm not sure about the mileage comparison for refrigerated. In talking with flatbed drivers, the tarping pay and higher cpm basically compensates for fewer weekly miles compared to dry van in general. This is all just ball park of course since there are several variables in figuring pay (CPM in the same division can vary based on your home location, taxes differ by state, deductions from check, etc.), but it is in black and white for people to see rather than just unverified ramblings.

The 3985 and 3705 mileage weeks are because of a prior week’s paperwork being submitted a week late, so several hundred of those miles should be accredited to the prior week.

BMI:

Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Do you numbers work out to be approx. $41,750.00 from 2/7/19 to 2/7/20? In that time period does this indicate approx. 310 on the road and approx. 55 days at home?

I hope I catch your second year numbers when you post them. That will be interesting. Do you plan on staying with them another year?
