    3 years ago I asked @Chinatown for advice on $100k trucking jobs and he gave me a list. I’m grateful to report that this year I’m on track to make over $150k and home every weekend. Cryogenic tanker. Thanks @Chinatown, I couldn’t be happier!

    It's great that you remembered to say thank you to a veteran who helped you when you needed most.
    It'll be soon your turn to help someone else in the same or different way.
    Keep on driving.

    Weeeeeeeeeeeell, I wouldn't blow too much sunshine, it's TTR that should get the nod, Chinatown is merely a spoke in the wheel here. He provides a valuable service for those too lazy to get off their axx and physically look for jobs, like I did, but I realize, these are different times. A boss looking for a driver would plotz ( or hire them right away) if an applicant came in and actually looked them in the eye. I like Chinatown, even though he has a wierd sense of humor, he's not really doing anything special, EVERY trucking company is looking for drivers. Take your pick,,,

    Which company are you with now.? That's a great career you have going and can look at early retirement some day.

    Call me what you want, I don't care, but I don't think so. I may be out of touch, but you mean to tell me this person will make 1/3 of what the president makes? I have a hard time believing someone could even make 6 figures, much less $150 grand. No wonder our country is so screwed up. Again, maybe, but pay has ALWAYS been the biggest BS story through the ages. And if it IS true, don't you think there would be a line a mile long for these alleged "6 figure" driving jobs? Many of the jobs I see here are, for example, a T/T mail hauling job, $32.10/hr., and a water tanker job, $29.50, or about $60 grand/year, a far more plausible amount. Cryogenic tankers are pretty dangerous, it's not like a van of axxwipe, but it's not right to make everyone think this is normal pay for a truck driver. I read, the average pay for a Walmart transport driver is about $76 grand, 6% above average, not the $110 grand they tell you.

    Lots of 6 figure trucking jobs out here for company drivers.
    Cryo is the easiest and foodservice is the hardest. I guess linehaul is in the middle. All those can make 6 figure pay.

    In 1980, the average trucker in America was making an annual salary, adjusted for inflation, equal to more than $110,000 today.

    Abso;utely
    Absolutely right. AB-CA-AB, Reefer work MEAT SB, Produce NB.
    50weeks/year X 3300mls/rounder X .62CPM=102,300 CAD.
    Throw in additional pay like Meat inspections and
    Deliveries for about 3000 CAD and here you have it.
    Not everyone will have that. But some will.
    The most setbacks will be due to equipment failure and the consequential downtime.
    EDIT: Yearly total hours spent on duty about 66X50=3300h.
    Added info for context. This is not the highest paying job in the industry.
