Pride Transport recently announced a third pay increase to drivers in the last year.
The most recent pay increase, which took effect Friday, Oct. 1, joins the previous two pay increases from July 2021 and December 2020 for a total of 10 cents-per-mile pay increase for the year.
The company says its average truck driver will now be expected to make $70,000 in earnings annually, an increase of over 20% from pre-pandemic levels.
The new pay rate range for a solo over-the-road driver at Pride is between 51 cpm up to .75 cpm. A $10,000 sign-on bonus is paid out at a rate of $100 per week during the first two years of employment.
