More on Team Driving Jobs

Team truck drivers are needed to quickly move freight across the United States and Canada.  Because there are federal driving rules, drivers are have to take mandatory breaks.  Teams also are required to follow these rules but since there are two drivers, one can drive while the other driver sleeps,  that way goods can be shipped  seamlessly rather than the need to stop for 10 hour sleep breaks each day as a solo driver so now you see why team driving jobs are in such demand.

Being that there are two drivers the pay is divided unless, of course, it goes to a combined account such as a husband/wife.  Even if it is divided by two unrelated people, usually each can make more money as a team because more miles are driven.  Team driving adds a new problem though, that being a close relationship in a confined area!  You should be certain that you can get along with another person for long periods of time; as long as 2-3 months.  Normally, you get home long before this, but a 6-8 weeks is very normal for a lot of teams.

It should also be a easier to be more safe as a team.  As an example, my wife and I incorporate walkie-talkies to communicate while backing.  This makes backing accidents virtually non-existent; something not easily available to solo drivers.  I’ve talked her into a places during inclement weather; both times lights were out and was very difficult as a driver to see.

Team driving jobs are in demand and companies are always looking for teams.  There are some requirements that we are looking for including having a  Class-A CDL and 6 months of over-the-road driving experience.  If interested, please don’t contact us to see if you meet other requirements and find out more about our offer.

Team Driving Jobs

If you’re looking for team driving jobs, please check us out.  It isn’t for everyone but if you’re the right team it can be a pretty good deal.  By the way, my wife and I are drivers too.

Our trucks are leased on to FedEx Custom Critical.  It’s an expediting company.  We haul for one customer at a time; pick up then deliver.  Usually, you can make the same money or more than you do now, and drive far less!  Of course that depends on where you’re coming from.  We average 10,000-12,000 miles a month as a team and we have very light loads; around 10,000 lbs.!

The pay is percentage of load.  That shouldn’t scare you, drivers should be able to split $110,000 to $120,000 per year.  It’s like any other company, some months are better than others.  We provide the truck, maintenance, fuel, etc..   Our trucks are newer model Kenworths, have Prepass/E-ZPass, XM radio and APU’s.   

You’re looked at as an owner/operator by the company we’re leased to so it isn’t forced dispatch; you take the loads you like and you take time off when you want.  Our only requirement is that you be on the road 75% of the month, minimum.  Personally, we stay out a couple of months at a time.   We drive in the United States and Canada.  

So if team driving jobs is what you’re looking at, you probably have more questions and we can give you more info on requirements by the company.  One thing is, you really need to have HazMat and Tanker endorsements as it makes you available to more loads.

NOTICE:  Because of Workman’s Compensation rules in Colorado, Nevada and North Carolina it wouldn’t be beneficial for you to work for us as it’s MUCH more expensive.
