National Survey of Driver Wages

Competitive benchmarking for OTR and regional trucking companies

What information does it include? 

The National Survey of Driver Wages gives subscribers access to powerful benchmarking data for nearly 200 attributes of professional driver compensation plans. These include per-mile and hourly wages by experience level, per diem, activity pay, detention pay, recruiting bonuses, orientation pay, 401(k) benefits packages, health insurance, qualifications, performance and safety incentives, and dozens more. 

How do I access it?  

Subscribers can run unlimited, custom benchmarking reports in the NTI Subscriber Portal. Here, users access survey data, Power BI visual reports, and competitor comparisons by trailer type and location. The NTI Subscriber Portal offers accurate, verified, actionable data to benchmark costs, monitor trends, and make strategic decisions.  

What are the subscription details? 

An annual subscription to the National Survey of Driver Wages covers your entire fleet. Additional accounts will be established as needed for anyone in your organization who requires access to the benchmarking reports.
