Atlas Van Lines raises pay


Atlas Van Lines recently announced it is raising pay for its truckload freight division drivers by an average of six cents per mile and 10 cents per mile for its special commodities division. The company is also paying additional mileage pay on all first-year miles to new drivers in its freight divisions.

Additionally, the company says it is now accepting occupational accident coverage in addition to its previous requirement for worker’s compensation coverage for owner-operators.

Atlas has also expanded its corporate fuel discount program for owner-operators, which combined will save owner-ops nearly $10,000 annually, the company says.
