What is the average trucker's salary?

I am seriously considering this as a career.

Truck drivers make around sixty seven thousand dollars a year. Heavy truck CDL, tanker, or tractor trailer drivers can earn considerably more when traveling across the country.

It usually ranges between $45,000 and $50,000. Truck drivers are paid by the mile. The pay can range from around 30 cents per mile to over 45 cents a mile. It all depends on the company you work for, the amount of experience you have, and what type of training you may have.

The average yearly salary of a truck driver is $50,000. There are specific jobs under this, such as a local city driver, who only make around $40,000. A good choice to make would be to try to become a flat bed company driver, or an SE Regional Company driver, as both of those careers come with a salary over $100k.

Trucker's salries can vary depending on what you haul. For those who handle waste products or are certified to handle hazardous materials there is normally a pay incentive. Truckers can have an annual salary from $30,000 upwards of $100,000.

The average trucker can make up to 200 000 dollars a year depending on location he travels to. It is a career for most people.

Yeah no joke, you should take this seriously, cause this job is no joke, in our country here in philippines it takes a trucker to earn 10$ (convert from peso in a week) so it means totally low wages but this is a great job. I consider the truckers are really great people!
