The survey data includes 185 fleets, over 135,000 employee drivers, and nearly 20,000 independent contractors, with data broken down by for-hire truckload (TL) carriers, less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers and private fleets. Pay rate and annual compensation data is for 20201. The study provides company, employee driver, and employee benefits profiles for private, TL, and LTL carriers.

Base-pay by years of experience, bonus and incentive data was vetted further by:

  • TL – by trailer type and independent contractor, drayage and non-drayage
  • LTL – by region, then over-the-road (OTR) and local
