    Could someone send me a private message about average pay per mile at landstar and Schneider (or Schneider tanker)? I have searched the internet and can't get any straight answers. I have 5 years experience and realize its percentage and fluctuates. Just a ballpark figure. I'm not trying to get rich or anything. I got back into trucking because of the load boards. I just want to net the same as a company driver but have the freedom to pick my own loads. I don't want to work broker load boards yet. Baby steps. Thanks in advance, sirs

    Does landstar even have a tanker division??
    I don't know how a guy could answer the question, landstars average is what you make of it.

    I once penetrated a company and discovered they were paying around 2,40 or so to Owner Operators in the1990's

    IF you not get say 3.00 and up on all miles then I don't know why you are in this undustry.
     
    Intothesunset Thanks this.

    A wink is good for a finger.

    Anything more takes verbal consent.

    I was exploring the upper floor. They left many doors open. One in particular contained a printer of spreadsheet size, on that printer by SSN for all people associated with company in any capacity (I remember one O/O who owed them 50,000 USD for a new tractor in those days...) and myself for a couple hundred.

    And the other column indicated the fleet mileage pay revenue on my particular coil load about 2.42 So take 0.38 off 2.42 the company is doing quite well for that money across the fleet.

    That was quite enough for my eyes before I got chased out of there and the door slammed properly. Nothing more was said about that one. I do in those days alot of exploring. You learn many things that are not explained at all.

    However since everything was open and I was a valid employee up there accessing their other computers for further information on myself and my unit there was no harm done. Once they understood I understood their systems they quit being very open on their internal notes etc. It was way better in those days than trying to be a fly on the wall unnoticed.

    Thankfully those days are long gone. I generally limit information to when, who, what, where and why. Once I had all five then its possible to generate a yes or no. Or sometimes when you realized just how outrageous sometimes they try to be, you hollar "Thats BS" in a volume designed to have the whole floor hear you. "Columbus in 8 hours?! HA... everyone knows you need 14 to do that." Which means a 10 hour run and then a 8 hour rest for some more running the next morning. Its easier when the drivers room is right there in the corner with 40 opinionated drivers who cannot be bothered with a 100 mile load dispatch but will take your 3000 mile haul.

    He obviously hasn't seen the load boards for the last 20 years.
