What does it mean to drive as a Team?
Truck 推动团队s are made up of two people who share driving and other responsibilities related to their freight. 在斯威夫特, our teams run on accounts that are time sensitive and have more distant routes when compared to solo 司机. So, while one driver is "on duty" and driving, the other driver is "off duty" and sleeping – making it possible for a team to cover more miles in less time than a solo driver.
With Swift’s expansive and diverse customer base, we offer plenty of Team driving opportunities that fit your 需要s. 这些包括:
- Run 4,500 miles per week on average
- Typically 2 experienced 司机 (6 months of experience or more)
- Freight is typically very time-sensitive (just-in-time freight)
- Customers include major online retailers, health, and retail
- On-time service is highly critical
- 每周跑4000 - 5000英里
- Consistent and predictable home time
- Mid-high earning potential (varies by account)
- Typically 2 experienced 司机 or 1 new driver with an experienced driver
- Customers include major retailers and home improvement retailers
如果你想成为团队的一员, but do not necessarily want to run a high amount of miles every week, we have dedicated opportunities that fit those 需要s! Think of them as a more relaxed team, who enjoy traveling and making money while doing it. The miles per week are flexible to what you and your teammate are comfortable with.
- Run less than 800 miles per day
- Typically a couple or two friends who are looking to see the country and drive together
- Freight includes next day delivery, overnight loads, and out-and-back runs
- Consistent and predictable home time
只要两个司机都有 Class A CDL, they can be part of your 推动团队. Just a few possible combinations for teams include:
- Former Classmates (from your CDL Academy)
New Swift 司机: Please note that we don't assign team members, so you'll have to choose your partner before being hired as a team.
Current 司机: For more information on our husband-and-wife team truck driving jobs, to start a team with a friend or one of your employees, or for ideas on how to develop your own partnership, talk to Swift’s driver placement team at .
The Federal Motor Carrier 安全 Administration (FMCSA)1 requires 团队的司机s to spend 8 consecutive hours in their sleeper berths, but also allows team members to rest for 2 additional hours in the passenger seat while the vehicle is moving. This way, each driver gets 10 hours of rest even while their truck is moving. (Note: If a driver spends more than 2 hours in the passenger seat, that time should be properly logged as on-duty (not driving) time.)
司机 are allowed to switch back and forth from on duty to off duty until either driver reaches the maximum limit of 60 or 70 hours on duty in any 7- or 8-day period.
当你是团队的一员, your truck driving salary will increase because the truck can be active longer – and if you're an OTR 团队的司机, 你的薪水几乎可以翻倍. Currently, we have OTR teams that drive:
在一般情况下, 团队的司机s can expect to receive an average annual salary (per driver) of $61,156-$71,383 ($1,210-$1,419周). However, for information on what your team salary may be for a specific route, please talk to your driver leader or a Swift recruiter. Additional salary information by line of business can be found on our 工资页面.
Driving as part of a team can be an incredibly rewarding experience – in terms of your paycheck and your life. With the chance to spend time with someone you care about, do a job you love and make a good living, it can be a dream for someone who enjoys life on the road.
