percentage of load pay.
30% of a $1.00 a mile is $.30cpm, and split that for a team = not much.
$.30cpm for a solo is the same minus the split part.
30% of pay to the truck is all well and fine except for the mileage incurred: short hauls sometimes tend to pay better somewhat, where long hauls are what they are.
Is this % pay on ALL miles, dead-head AND loaded??
When I drove for % pay in '99, I was paid one rate for loaded (24%) and less for empty (20%). 30% ain't much increase since '99, yet this is just MY opinion.
Will you be under Forced Dispatch as stated in another post??
If I cannot view the paperwork or the information describing the load, then I cannot accept the load, for I refuse to haul what I don't know is in the trailer
(as in the hooking to a sealed trailer).
I hope you two venture well and I hope you prosper well!!
