Launch your business with an LTL trendsetter
E-commerce growth has fueled new business opportunities for owner-operators, and Schneider’s LTL freight leases put you in perfect position to take advantage.
REASONS TO BE A LESS-THAN-TRUCKLOAD OWNER-OPERATOR OR FLEET OWNER AT SCHNEIDER
Pick what best suits your business model
Run your business as a team or solo owner-operator, and choose how you run — more dedicated lanes with greater predictability or long-haul miles with more of an over-the-road style. With non-forced dispatch, you ultimately pick the loads and routes that work for you.
Most loads are drop-and-hook
An already-robust owner-operator freight network keeps expanding as consumers purchase more types of products online. Haul primarily over-dimensional, drop-and-hook loads like furniture, which make for lightweight loads that minimize wear on your truck. With access to Schneider facilities and terminals, you can optimize your miles and time.
Up to $1.20 per mile in revenue
Team owner-operators earn up to $1.20 per mile and solos up to $1.15 per mile — on all miles. With utilization-friendly miles, that means you can surpass $140,000 in annual revenue. Plus, get 100% fuel surcharge on routed miles. Weekly settlements every Friday give you full revenue visibility and the ability to easily manage your cash flow.
Get free installation of an in-cab device that adheres to the Electronic Logging Device mandate, with a minimal $50 per month PeopleNet usage fee.
