Dedicated Van Truck Driver in Cincinnati

Get weekly home time, regular routes, consistent miles, excellent pay and almost entirely drop & hook van freight! This is an established customer. We know how to run this business and do it right to service both the customer and drivers alike.

Where will I drive?

You will primarily deliver to stores in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio (located mostly around Louisville, Cincinnati and Indianapolis). Because this freight is so consistent, within a month, you’ll likely have been to all the stores.

How many miles will I get each week?

In this fleet we are targeting 2,100 to 2,200 address-to-address practical miles each week. It’s important to note that Roehl uses the starting and ending address to calculate the practical route miles, so in addition to being paid for 5-8% more miles than HHG carriers, these calculations better reflect the miles actually driven on each load.

When will I drive?

You’ll drive mostly Sunday to Thursday. There are multiple start times available between 2 am and 6 am. Drivers who start early tend to make the most money on this fleet.

When will I get home?

You will be home weekly for at least 34 hours.

What will I haul?

Retail goods. Remember, these are almost entirely drop and hooks – no unloading!

This is an excellent home weekly driving job for an experienced class A truck driver. No experience? We offer on-the-job training. Join Roehl Transport and be a leader!
