Looking at putting a driver on the road hauling cattle with one of my trucks on a percentage basis. Anyone willing to share what the going rate is? REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

25% after fuel some vary, 25% off the top, or 25% of 2.50 or 2.75 depending on what rate you getting, take a buck and a quarter to buck and a half off the full rate then 25% from that. most now are taking fuel first, then driver wages from the rest, this way your rearend is covered REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

If I have someone drive for me they get 25% of whatever the truck makes. So say I send a load to Nebraska from North Dakota and the truck makes $3000, the driver will fget a check for $750 for that load. If I am running hard and want someone to ride along to switch off and on for driving so we can run 24 hours they get 15% of the trucks gross and I even pay for the meals. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Thanks for your reply Jared. Is that 25% before you pay fuel? Just wondering. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

Thanks for your reply Brian. Hopefully there will be more so I can see the range of options. Obviously everyone negotiates something a little different. REPLY REPLY WITH QUOTE

I am a driver that takes care of billing, truck and trailer ordering and buying and all permits. I get 25% of total gross. I also find all my loads myself. Its basicaly my own company with someone else paying for everything. I can do anything i want to do with the truck. I also have a 2009 chevy 4 door pickup that he gives me and i can drive anywhere. so to answer question its the kind of job you do and how take care of business on how much you get paid.
