A leading tanker carrier recently announced a pay increase for its drivers.

Jacksonville, Florida-headquartered Florida Rock & Tank Lines, Inc. announced a 15% pay hike for new and current petroleum tanker truck drivers, effective April 30. The company said the pay increase is a way to thank drivers for their hard work and professionalism while also attracting new drivers for petroleum deliveries.

In addition to the pay increase, the petroleum driver position allows drivers to be home daily. Florida Rock & Tank Lines petroleum truck drivers work with local clients within a 75-mile radius, delivering three or four loads per shift. The company's drivers also earn six-month driver seniority pay, quarterly and annual safety bonuses, and a retention bonus.

Florida Rock & Tank Lines, Inc. operates a fleet of 400 tractors and 500 trailers from 21 terminals throughout the Southeast.
