Team Owner Operator Truck Driving Job – Memphis, Tennessee

JUST ANNOUNCED: Destination-Based Compensation

What is destination-based compensation? Destination-based compensation will add additional compensation to ALL loaded and empty miles ran by Team Owner Operators based on applicable load destination locations.

Why would a Team Owner Operator consider leasing on to Forward’s OTR LTL program?

Forward has the most consistent Team Owner Operator offerings in the industry. With competitive per-mile compensation rates, light loads that save on fuel and maintenance, and routes running exclusively between our nationwide locations, it’s no wonder the average annual revenue generated by Owner Operators and Fleet Owners who do business with Forward is at the top of the charts. Forward works hard to both negotiate the best rates with its customers and offer efficient, profitable loads to Owner Operators and Fleet Owners. In fact, Forward has been able to offer Owner Operators and Fleet Owners five rate increases in the last four years. With our new destination-based compensation, there is no doubt you will soon turn your truck into a revenue generating machine!

What is destination-based compensation? Simply put, destination-based compensation will add additional compensation to ALL miles run by Teams and Solo Owner Operators based on applicable load-destination locations.
