Experienced Driver Job Pay and Benefits

Pay and benefits that make a difference in your life.

Earning Potential.

As of April 2024, Roehl drivers with at least one year on the job are averaging $1,345 a week (about $70,000 a year). It's also important to know that the top 50% of Roehl drivers average $1,530 per week (more than $79,700) a year.

Instead of a flat cents per mile pay plan like most other trucking companies, our dynamic pay plan better rewards drivers for their time. And, our address-to-address practical route miles means Roehl drivers are paid for more of the miles they actually drive as compared to HHG or regular practical miles.


Video: Why Experienced Drivers Choose Roehl: Rick Roehl - Pay, Equipment and Safety

In this video, CEO Rick Roehl talks about why experienced truck drivers choose Roehl Transport. Rick speaks about several of our values, including Driver Success - we provide responsiveness, care and solutions to help driver meet their professional and personal goals. That value is evidenced through the Your Choice Pay Plan that empowers our drivers to achieve higher levels of income through their performance. Rick highlights how our pay plan rewards drivers much faster than most time-based (or years-of-service-based) truck driver pay plans.

Rick is a also a professional truck driver with his Class A CDL, and he notes that we put a great deal of effort into maintaining our equipment (preventative maintenance) and resolving issues quickly. (Our maintenance team measures time in the shop in minutes, while most other companies measure it in days. Because our equipment is top-notch, our drivers keep moving, being productive and earning.)

Rick also describes our expectation that truck drivers can be both safe and productive. Safety is Roehl's Cornerstone Value, and our drivers are leaders in productivity, safety and earnings.
