Salary and Bonuses
Some trucking companies may guarantee you a higher per-mile rate than DTI. Unfortunately, they won’t guarantee how many miles you will actually get to drive. Our first year drivers average $55,000. After that our drivers average about $80,000 per year, which includes bonuses for achieving service, safety and department goals.
