Home time by driver type

To get a sense of average home time and mileage, take a look at the following driver types:

Over-the-Road (OTR)

More than half our drivers are OTR, serving customers in a 22-state region (see map). Drivers at this level typically have higher mileage and income goals.

Home time: Every week or
every other week
Mileage: 2,500–3,000 miles/week
Regional

Kansas City, St. Louis, and DFW

One-third of our drivers make regional moves to areas around Kansas City, St. Louis, or Dallas, where we have drop lots.

Home time: 1–3 nights per week and home on weekends
Mileage: 2,000–2,500 miles/week
Owner Operator

Whether you own your own truck or want to purchase one through MWEX, we can make it work for you. Most of our owner operators drive OTR. If you’re interested in lease-to-own, we have many trucks to choose from.

Home time: Your choice
Mileage: Your choice

See Compensation for pay rates for any of the above driver types.
