C.R. England hikes pay for trainers

Starting today (Jan. 19) Salt Lake City-based C.R. England will implement a 4 cent pay increase for all training miles driven by company trainers in its national and regional divisions.

Depending on tenure, this pay increase is an average of 14.5 percent increase over current pay levels.

“This pay increase goes to a group of men and women that have worked very hard to help us ensure that the future of our driving force is bright,” said Brandon Harrison, chief operating officer. “We appreciate and value the time trainers invest in teaching, mentoring and developing our apprentices, and we want them to value this responsibility.”

Founded in 1920, C.R. England is one of North America’s largest transportation companies. Its services include national, Mexico and regional truckload service and dedicated and intermodal services.
