Additionally, linehaul team company driver pay is also set to increase by 20 percent starting in early January, according to a statement from the company.

“Our drivers have been resilient throughout this entire year dealing with unprecedented challenges in the transportation and shipping industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Nick Cook, FFE vice president of operations. “As market conditions have changed and the American economy has roared back to life in recent months, we are thrilled to be in the position to increase our linehaul driver pay significantly starting in only a few weeks.

“Truck drivers across the country have been the unsung heroes of 2020, and we are very proud of our drivers at Frozen Food Express. This pay increase, coupled with consistent lanes and predictable home time, further positions FFE as one of the most desirable carriers to drive for in the entire industry.”
