What is a solo truck driver?
Solo truck drivers are truck drivers who are just that, solo. These drivers are not on a team, but drive for themselves. Drivers who take on solo truck driving jobs are responsible for all of the duties a truck driving team may have on the road. This can be general maintenance of the vehicle, performing safety checks before and after a freight load, route planning and the driver may have to help load and unload cargo. The main benefit of solo truck driving jobs is that the driver is in control of how they work, when they drive and when they rest.
Do solo or team drivers make more money?
Solo drivers can still earn a lucrative living by driving for themselves, but team drivers have the potential to earn more. Team drivers can have one driver rest while the other is driving and split duties when picking/ dropping off cargo. In this way, team drivers are able to keep the truck moving at a faster pace than a solo driver and they are able to take on more loads.
How much do Solo Truck Drivers make?
The average salary of a solo truck driver is $75,798 per year or $1,458 per week. Solo Truck Drivers can make anywhere from $56,073 to $100,000 depending on where they are driving and how many hours per week they are driving.
