Your Questions About Being an Owner Operator, Answered


Truck Driver Settlement

There’s plenty of opportunity to earn the money you’d like to see in your settlement, but to make that happen, expect to spend lots of time on the road. Solo LTL Linehaul Owner Operators and Lease Purchase truck drivers can earn up to $210,000 per year and teams can earn up to $350,000+ per year, but only if your time on the road is prioritized. We know riding solo for long periods of time can be tough, but Roadrunner Freight allows you to bring a furry friend along with you (no charge), or a companion over the age of 12 to also accompany you (with a small monthly fee). Settlement information is available at the tip of your fingers by using Roadrunner Freight’s handy app, HaulNOW.

Plan Your Trips Ahead of Time

Call your destination service center ahead of time if you need a load. Communicating your next move is the key to running a successful business in trucking. Let your dispatcher know where you’re coming from and where you’re looking to go next. Owner Operators can utilize the HaulNOW Mobile App to conveniently find loads and get contact information for Roadrunner Freight’s locations. Loads can get taken quickly, and it’s up to you to ask questions, use Roadrunner Freight’s resources available to you, communicate and plan your trips ahead.

Manage Your Finances Well

Home time and vacation time are essential to a healthy life/work balance. We encourage Owner Operators to carefully monitor their finances to accommodate for emergencies, time off and regular business expenses. Our dedicated Fleet Coordinators are also available to offer support to Owner Operators who are new to the industry, offer advice and help Owner Operators reach settlement goals. 

Driving Your Business Forward

It takes a dedicated, hard working individual to become a truck driver, and while owner operator opportunities are abundant, having the individualized support from Roadrunner Freight yet the freedom to run on your own terms makes the experience positive.
