    a company driver?
    the plus side of it all is that they get a driver

    Used to be like that in the old days. My rig was leased to PIE,CF,TIME DC,other union carriers,back in the day. All pretty much the same. Tractor got roughly 40%,trailer got 10%,together,that was the truck check. Driver pay was on a separate check,roughly 25%. Last 25% to the carrier. Pretty much every carrier back then was on, or close to a 75/25 percentage lease. Driver was an employee of the company,got teamster benefits,and even gained senority.

    I’m a bit confused... you are in a Leased/Purchase Thread (Leasing a Truck through a Company) but wanting to discuss leasing your truck (assumed owned) on to a Company...

    Maybe I’m missing something.

    Not that way any more because 25% was not enough for the greedy companies. Also a ignorant crooked individual I will refer to as Jr let some companies get away with too much.

    Companies obviously got smarter than drivers in a business way.
