Gross Earnings Explained: We based the "Normal" Solo Driver Gross Earnings estimate on gross of $5000 to $7000 per week (up to $9000+ during peak) as was consistent in the fiscal year 2018 THEN coved happened and the market changed. Its been 25% or more higher ever since last June 2020. Gross earnings depend on your availability and the number of miles you commit to driving. We normally book loads at an average of 2.00 plus per mile during the low season with peaks upward of 2.60 per mile (year-round averages). We are now booking peak season rates in the slow season and averaging 3.50 or more in peak. This does not include peak season load outliers that are above and beyond these rates. Rates fully depend on freight demand, season, geographic location, and other market conditions affecting spot and dedicated market trends and vary from year to year. In some cases, load rates are MUCH higher but it is not consistent. As with all markets globally, rates go up and down. There are Owners who make less who don’t drive very much. There are Owners who make more who drive continually. This all depends on your commitment as well as market conditions going forward. But if you are a driver that likes to drive, we will put you to work and you will make excellent gross earnings. Our dispatch team is dedicated to getting top dollar year around. After all, we are partners in this. The more you make, the more we make.
