Schneider unit raises compensation rate
Dec 7, 2010 10:09 AM
The Tanker division at Schneider National, Schneider National Bulk Carriers, is increasing owner-operator compensation by $.05 per mile. The new rate increases owner-operator compensation to $1.05 per mile, plus fuel surcharge, for loaded and unloaded miles.
“Schneider National Bulk Carriers’ increase of $.05 per mile for tanker owner-operators is a very aggressive move and is one of few that we’re aware of in the industry for owner-operators,” said Gordon Klemp, president of the National Transportation Institute.
Schneider’s Tanker owner-operators average 125,000 miles a year and, with the largest increase in company history for this group taking effect Dec 5, 2010, could see an extra $6,250 per year in revenue with the new mileage rate.
Schneider National Bulk Carriers will be adding experienced tanker owner-operators and will also provide training to assist owner-operators considering a transition into the chemical-hauling industry.
In addition, Schneider Finance features truck-leasing/purchasing options for drivers looking to start their own business as an owner-operator. To learn more about leasing opportunities, visit www.schneiderjobs.com or call 1-800-285-3273.
