Yes almost all truck co's pay the driver by the mile. That's because the co's don't want to have to pay for delays like weather or breakdowns. Also, mileage is usually figured by a computer program so the driver is shorted about 5-7 % of actual mileage driven.

FYI, drivers do a lot of "free" duties such as hooking/unhooking trailers, fueling, paperwork, waiting to get loaded etc. Jimmy

Yes, but there's other pays on top of that to really jack the paychecks up.
