Booneville, Mississippi-based Morgan Van Lines has announced a new pay program that increases current drivers’ cents-per-mile pay as well as offers higher pay to new drivers based on their tenure with previous carriers.

The program is set up on two levels with the first offering drivers up to 50 cpm if they averaged less than two years of prior verifiable driving experience. Level two pays up to 55 cpm for qualified drivers who averaged two years or more of prior verifiable driving experience.

“We want to recognize and reward the professional truck driver who is not a job-hopper, who stays with a truck line for more than just a few months,” said Jeff Palmer with MVL. “These drivers deserve to keep their seniority when they want to move to a better career home.”
