Schneider National on Monday, Aug. 13, announced a pay increase for its company driver fleet. Effective Sept. 30, drivers will earn up to $4,500 more per year. In addition, the Green Bay, Wis.-based company says it has improved its driver dispatch program to get nearly two-thirds of its drivers home on a weekly basis.

The company’s new compensation program is for Schneider mileage-based over-the-road, dedicated and bulk drivers. Compensation varies by region of the country where the driver operates:

  • Inexperienced drivers receive company-provided training and will earn $.30-$.34 per mile ($36,000-$46,000 per year);
  • Experienced drivers with one year of experience will earn $.39-$.42 per mile;
  • Experienced drivers with three years of experience will earn $.40-$.43 per mile; and
  • Experienced drivers with five years-plus experience will earn $.41-$.455 per mile.
  • “These pay improvements represent our commitment to providing one of the best total compensation packages in the industry,” says Mark Rourke, president of truckload services for Schneider National. “It also highlights that drivers and customers are the lifeblood of Schneider National. This pay increase allows us to continue to retain and attract the best and brightest drivers in order to deliver the level of service our customers expect and deserve.”
