Leasing your truck with Plains Dedicated Express allows you to benefit from our unique compensation system that is based on the age of your equipment. Below are the current compensation levels:

Level I – 4 years and under

Level II – 5 years and older

Gross revenue is calculated as a percentage based on your specific equipment Level:

Level I Tractor = 77%

Level I Trailer = 11%

Level II Tractor = 75%

Level II Trailer = 10%

As an owner operator you could have a combination of equipment in two different Levels

For example: A Level I tractor with a Level II trailer would result in an 87% of the line haul, stop pay, detention and layover revenue.

Plains Dedicated Express pays 100% of the fuel surcharge as long as the truck and trailer are leased to us.

Owner operators will be required to keep an escrow account. Plains Dedicated Express has various methods available to assist in the funding of the escrow account.
