The best way truck drivers can get more home time
Posted: July 23, 2019
Historically in the trucking industry, the longer you can stay out on the road at a time has always equaled the more money you can make. Over-the-road (OTR) runs have been the norm and typically what everyone references when discussing the financial benefits of a trucking career. What if we told you that there was a way to maximize your earning potential without sacrificing regular home time? Spoiler alert: it’s much easier than you think!
The industry is changing, as is the needs of our drivers and their families. That’s why we at Whiteline have made it a priority to give you the opportunity to make good money with regional runs. Our increased pay allows our drivers to earn up to 50 cents per mile and still get home every weekend. That’s just mileage pay too. Our $10,000 sign-on bonus for experienced drivers, .12 cents per mile driver referral program and quarterly safety performance bonuses put even more money in your pocket.
Not sure what you’d do with all that extra free time? Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Connect with friends and family
- Enjoy your favorite summertime hobbies, like fishing, swimming and camping
- Attend a sporting event to cheer for your favorite team
- Catch up on projects around the house
- Give yourself a mental break for a couple days
- Travel to someplace new
- Watch your favorite TV shows or movies
- Relax at the pool or the beach
If your current OTR job has you constantly missing out on things at home or struggling to find that work/life balance you need, it might be time to consider a regional route with Whiteline Express. Find out what you could do with more home time in your life!
