Why Choose Sonwil

October 29, 2022

In the United States, there is an estimated 1.6 million drivers hauling 70% of the total freight, making trucking a very impactful industry sector with ever-growing labor requirements. The driver shortage is real. As qualified drivers retire from the industry, there is a lack of newly trained drivers entering the market to take their seat. As an experienced and qualified driver, you are a major asset in today’s trucking environment. You have options. Who do you want to drive for? The choice is yours.

Four reasons why a driving career at Sonwil is the right choice for you.

Home Time

At Sonwil, you are guaranteed home time, regardless of your route. If you want to be at home each day, we have local runs during each shift, 1st, 2nd or 3rd available. If you want to run regionally, we can get you home every other night, and if getting out over the road is your desire, we’ll bring you home for the weekends. Our drivers tell us that home and family time is extremely valuable to them and a large part of their job satisfaction.

Guaranteed Salary

Sonwil drivers know what their minimum take home is each week. If you’re driving local for Sonwil, you’re paid an hourly rate, and full-time local drivers will average 40 hours of paid time. Our regional and over-the-road drivers can count on a guaranteed salary for the week. Other companies pay their drivers by the mile…and while this can be lucrative, it’s highly dependent on the loads you haul, how you’re dispatched, and how good the shippers and receivers are about minimizing your dwell time. At Sonwil, there’s no guesswork when it comes to your pay, you know what your pay will be each week with a consistent base salary and opportunities to generate bonus pay. Did we mention a driving career at Sonwil includes paid time off?

Company Size

We’re a family-owned business with family values. You are not just a number at Sonwil…and you are not just a number. We take pride in getting to know each of our drivers and some of their family members on a personal level. We take the time to get to know you as not only a driver, but as a person. We want to know your aspirations, your interests, and how we can help you achieve them. You are essential to us and deserve to be treated as such.

High Quality Equipment

Your safety is our business. Out on the road, we don’t want you to have to worry about the maintenance and safety of the equipment. Each of our trucks are less than five years old and are maintained meticulously. When you’re out on the road, we want you to be able to focus on your job and experience minimal downtime. Your time is valuable, and we go to great lengths to ensure your wheels keep turning.
