General Pay Structures In Trucking

This site  The Web 

This page is designed to direct you to pages that give you a general idea of how truckers are compensated at company level, leased on and running their own authority as an owner operator.  Primarily, I use the levels of trucking responsibility and what the trucker is expected to be, know an do at each level, to fix an argument for how the trucker should and ought to be compensated in the business. Anyone considering becoming an owner operator, O/O should master each level.

I use the levels of trucking responsibility to affirm what the trucker is expected to be, know and do at each level of trucking, whether company driver, leased on, or independent owner operator. These levels of responsibilities should make a case for why the trucker should and ought to make the kind of money they deserve in commercial trucking. Ideally a trucker should be compensated for expanding on their responsibilities in the business. Anyone considering becoming an owner operator, O/O should master each level. 
 
Unfortunately the way Truckers are paid involves a middle man that has no legal boundaries requiring them to disclosure the price the buyer "which is the shipper" is paying and no boundaries for how much they can help themselves to before the trucker gets their share. Especially in the case of owner operators which use brokered loads: freight brokering is to the infinite degree, and by far more than any other profession, "a fiduciary responsibility gone horribly wrong". They are only intermediaries, in reality they don't even have a legal right to withhold from truckers information about how much the shipper is paying on the load. Since most truckers can't get this kind of vital information out of them, the only chance of getting it out of all of them consistently, is a matter of forcing them by law; and except the truckers legislate for it, that law will never exist.
 
Therefore Truckers oftentimes make less in business than any other business people in the world. After their expense they usually make less than or about half of what a company driver is paid. I’ll show you how this can happen later and I’ll show you how it can be overcome.

I Commercial Driver Load Responsibility:

Load responsibility is merely a commitment on behalf of a driver to responsibly maintain and use commercial equipment to pick up the load and deliver it safe, legally and in a prescribed day and time. Other things like paper work, logs, and maintenance, mapping etc. are also very important responsibilities learned at this level. In addition beginner level training can be done at this level. At this level one should avail himself or herself to research and constant gathering information on how the industry and trucking market will work together to  benefit them.

II Commercial Driver Unit Responsibility

Commercial unit responsibility includes the previous responsibilities of the load and bears the total responsibility of the Power unit, i.e. “the truck” not only is he financially responsible for maintenance, upkeep and ownership of the unit, he is responsible for any tax consequences and insurance requirements for the unit and the general financial responsibility and insuring the motoring public. In some cases he is responsible for finding loads and coordinating them with his Back-haul department. In other cases he is expected to choose all of his loads from the available loads provided on a company website or as communicated through other means.

III Commercial Driver Business Responsibility

Commercial driving business responsibility includes but is not limited to the previous responsibilities of the load and the unit, in addition to the total responsibility for the creation of the business, the structure of its services, the range and scope of the business, the choosing of all services for the business, all legal requirements, employment requirements, compliance requirements, record keeping e.g. maintenance, driver logs, qualification and medical/drug and alcohol screening and random test, filings, taxes, penalties, legal injunctions, negotiating of all contracts involved in the general day to day business, setting rates, finding loads, gauging the market, research and development “which is by the way is what you’re doing now, permits, buying and selling of equipment, trailers and other load securing devices and equipment, recovery in breakdown situations, training, office and location, rents, utilities, and all other overhead financial responsibilities, and the list goes on and on and on.
