What Is a Truck Driver’s Salary?

At NEXT, it’s our goal to offer solutions and technology that improves the lives of truck drivers every single day. A big part of that is helping drivers understand just how much they can earn on a weekly basis. Many carriers working with NEXT can earn up to $1000 a day in our Marketplace.

For context, a quick web search on “how much does a truck driver make?” brings up results that range from $3,500-$6,000… per month. NEXT has never been in the game of paying drivers as little as possible. When we learned drivers were making more than a monthly average every week, we approached these drivers to ask how they were doing it, and to come up with ways we can help other drivers replicate it.

In fact, that’s one of the key reasons we created our Carrier Advisory Board. We’re working with outstanding OOs and dispatchers to uplevel how much drivers are paid.

Does this mean every driver will earn $1k per day driving for us?

No, but that’s our goal.

If a driver wants to earn $1,000, they can opt to take round trip loads and do it. If they decide to work less hours, earn $10k per month ($500 per day x 5 days per week x 4 weeks per month), and be able to take their kids to school in the morning, that’s great too.

We’re empowering drivers to work when they want and how they want.
