Fair wage for driver

Oct 13, 2022 at 09:43 PM CST


New to the OTR industry and looking for some advice as im currently having trouble hiring drivers for my trucks.

I have a route going from New York to Ohio and back. 500 miles each way, just under 8 hour direct drive.

Trailer is attached and loaded when you start the day and there is no backhaul. Unload time is about 30-45 minutes.

Whats a desirable wage to pay someone to do this?

Shoukd i be looking at about $2,500 for 3 trips per week?

.65 cpm on the low end, .70 cpm or better if you want someone who is dependable and responsible.
