  • Greeley, Colorado and San Antonio, Texas crude/chemical drivers fall into a separate category for CDL-A Drivers at $1.75 per mile loaded $1.25 per mile empty +100% FSC

“Our drivers are top priority and our move to compete for their skills will always be on our radar,” said Stacey Milton, director of recruiting. “Trimac is committed to being a trail-blazer and we want the experience of working here to be pleasing both financially and culturally.”
