INDUSTRY LEADING PAY IS JUST THE BEGINNING

Drivers are professionals and we pay them that way. Our competitive base pay for OTR drivers and on our dedicated fleets is paid on practical miles. It sets a foundation for additional income through safety/productivity bonuses, vacation pay based on a driver’s actual pay, profit sharing contributions for retirement, and more. Add it all up and the top 50% of our OTR drivers average $96,034 in total compensation.

  • The top 50% of our OTR drivers average $96,034 per year
  • Starting OTR pay is $.59 – $.65 per mile
  • Quarterly safety / productivity bonus

  • Surge pay
  • Accessorial pay
  • The top 50% of our Dedicated and Regional fleets average $75,000 per year (with some fleets averaging over $91,000)
