    So my contractor currently has a couple open dedicated runs he offered me and teammate for a pathetic .46cpm spilt 5400 miles a week, but currently we run wild and make 61cpm spilt....do dedicated runs really pay that much less or is my contractor just cheap as hell?

    Hmm, that's a new one. I always thought a dedicated run paid better, because there was no "diddlin' around" time, and companies paid a premium to have the same person do that run. Now that's shot to heck. What a crappy profession this has turned into.:biggrin_25513: ( seems I use this symbol the most)

    I'm pretty sure that's how it works everywhere except at my company lol $1200 a week to pull doubles 5 1/2 days as a team....hellllllllllll naw

    @MoonlightServices would likely be able to find out.

    I don't really see what knowing what your contractor gets paid matters here though, he pays what he pays and that's that.

    I think running wild leaves a lot more room for extra bid points rescuing loads and whatnot. Could just be that drivers are more valuable to him in the system than on a route and has nothing to do with money.

    None of the contractors around me pay that way that I know of. Dedicated teams here are splitting anywhere from 52-62 cpm from what I've seen offered and heard from others.

    5400 miles a week vs. ??? . Are you consistently getting 4100 miles a week @ .61 cpm or more now?

    We get 5000 miles a week and 2 days off consistently right now... we just finished a 6500 mile week but only a day 1/2 off. I'm only curious if routes pay different I could care less what the actual number is...my contractor actually pays different CPM depending on the dedicated route which iv found weird.

    All solo runs pay the same. Dedicated or open wheel.

    Team runs pay MORE (about 7 cents a mile more than solo) and again, regardless of dedicated or not.

    To clarify - there are two pay scales

    Solo and team.

    Solo is about $1.52 a mile loaded or empty.

    Team is about $1.60 a mile loaded or empty.

    I figured that but my contractor told me they don't make as much money on dedicated routes and that's why they only pay .46cpm split lol. Was just curious more than anything
