The industry's best waiting allowance

DFS is pleased to offer its drivers the best waiting allowance in the industry. Get $30 in expenses incurred for each 4-hour block of waiting following the first 4 hours of waiting for loading or unloading. Example: you can get $120 for a 20 hour wait.


Progressive salary scale without cap

The first increase from 25,000 miles, the second increase at 50,000 miles, the third increase at 100,000 miles. Thereafter, the scale progresses every 100 000 miles, without any cap. The salary scale applies to all drivers paid by mileage.


Best compensation for loading and unloading

Compensation for loading and unloading is progressive and can be combined within a single trip. The first segment is paid $30. $5 is added to each subsequent segment, up to a maximum of $60. For example, a driver who did 8 loads or unloads will be paid $375 based on the grid below.

Segment Compensation
1st $30
2nd $35
3rd $40
4th $45
5th $50
6th $55
7th $60
8th $60
Total $375

A winning runner program

A driver who indicates availability earlier than the start date receives additional amount of up to 3 ¢ per trip. When a driver decides to move up his day trip by one day, he gets 1 ¢ per mile, for 2 days, 2 ¢ per mile and 3 days, 3 ¢ per bonus mile.


Trips that allow me to earn more.

My family situation allows me to adapt my trips to my time schedule. As a young adult, I can afford to go longer and farther, which means I can earn more on each trip.

DFS offers the best pay. Multiple loading and unloading helps me to put more money in my pocket, wherever I go. The more loads and unloads, the more I earn.

Working at DFS, I feel I'm paid for my true worth. I can adapt my trips according to my time schedule and availability, so I have the opportunity to spend more time with my friends. With the new salary policy, I can improve my trips with compensation for communications costs of up to $31 per trip.


Enjoying every minute while contributing to my retirement.

Since I am retired, I can take the time I need to plan my trips. With the retiree program, I can plan my trips up to 30 days.

I've never seen a waiting allowance like that offered by DFS. I earn while I wait, because I'm compensated for my expenses at $30 per 4-hour block.

Working at DFS, I have the opportunity to spend more time with my grandchildren and enjoy my retirement while still remaining active. I feel appreciated with the retiree program because it's adapted to my situation. The new DFS remuneration policy works for all employees because it was created for us.


A job that allows me to fully enjoy life.

My schedule allows me to make long distance trips, so I can get up to 6 days off between each departure. When I return, I take the time for myself and to see my family, who live several hours away from home. I also like to get ahead of my trips for a few days when I can afford it.

Early bird departures mean I can get a surcharge up to 3 ¢ per mile. At DFS, we get really more for each trip.

I love long distance routes; I spend most of my time on the highway. I always look forward to the next trip. I'm discovering new places, I decide with whom I will travel, and I never feel like I'm working.
