An Arkansas carrier this week announced a major pay increase for its solo drivers.
Transco Lines, Inc., which is based in Russellville, Arkansas said it was instituting the largest solo driver pay increase in the company’s 37-year history. This pay increase will be effective the first week of April to the current drivers and incoming drivers joining the fleet.
Since its founding in 1984 TLI "has been an industry leader by servicing customers across the country with a well-trained, professional driver force," according to Terry Wallace, president of the company. "TLI drivers are among the safest on America’s highways and our drivers are truly the TLI difference.”
Transco Lines operates over 350 power units and 700 dry van trailers. The TLI fleet consists of 175 solo drivers and 170 teams. Company drivers have 100% "no touch" freight, 98% drop and hook, and expedited freight.
Transco Lines is located off Interstate 40 between Little Rock and Fort Smith and has a full-service maintenance terminal in North Little Rock.
