Six essential things to know about driving for Panther
Find out what sets us apart so you can get the most out of your experience:
There are multiple ways to drive with us
We understand that driving is not a one-size-fits-all career. When you join the Panther network, we meet you where you are and help you maximize your opportunities.
As an independent owner-operator, you can be your own boss and run profitably in your preferred region.
Fleet drivers can learn from the industry’s most experienced professionals without the added responsibility of truck ownership.
Fleet owners can reduce overhead costs by utilizing Panther’s insurance discounts, fuel discounts, and driver recruiting services. Want to grow your fleet? Panther can help you gain access to equipment deals that are only possible through Panther’s network and relationships.
Note: All drivers and vehicle owners are independent contractors.
Being a road warrior is part of the job
Expedited driving can be very profitable, but the trade-off is that it often requires long stretches away from home. However, you can run nationwide with access to Panther’s diverse nationwide freight network. The more you drive, the more you can earn.
Driving teams can grow profits faster
Teams are highly sought-after in expedited shipping because they can stay on the move around the clock, resulting in faster deliveries. That also equates to more earning potential as the miles add up. Learn more about the benefits of team driving.
Staying organized is critical to success
Panther has earned a reputation for meeting customers’ needs by delivering high-value, time-sensitive freight quickly, safely, and intact. You can do the same — and more — as part of the Panther fleet. We’ll teach you how to efficiently manage your business and support you along the way so you can focus on driving.
Mentors can accelerate your growth
Connecting with experienced expediters is invaluable. They can help you learn the ins and outs of the business, what to do and what to avoid. Panther can help you gain efficiencies and grow your business if you're a truck or fleet owner. If you’re a fleet driver with ownership aspirations, Panther’s experienced owner-operators can be a tremendous resource as you settle in and learn the business.
We offer a simple path to truck ownership
Our partnership with Expediter Services (ES) makes finding a path to truck ownership or growing your fleet easier than ever.
