Bay & Bay Transportation recently announced its plans to roll out new earning rates for owner operators beginning April 1, 2017. The carrier prides itself on providing drivers with some of the industry’s best advantages when it comes to safety, consistent loads, pay and driving opportunities. Named one of the Best Fleets to Drive For in 2016 by CarriersEdge and the Truckload Carriers Association, the Minnesota-based company is committed to meeting drivers’ needs for financial stability with best in class pay.

“At Bay & Bay, we understand that a driver’s time is important and they should be compensated accordingly,” explains Sam Anderson, President of Bay & Bay. “This is why our owner operators can rely on getting paid for their miles, whether unloaded or loaded.”

With the new earning rates, loaded mileage pay will be $0.97 – $1.27 based on the length of the run. The exact loaded mileage pay breakdown is as follows: $1.27 for 0-150 miles; $1.17 for 151-250 miles; $1.07 for 251-300 miles; and 97 cents for 301 or more miles. Empty mileage pay will be 90 cents per mile. Current independent contractors can stay on the company’s current compensation plan or switch to the new rates when they become available.

Owner operators at Bay & Bay can expect to average around 2,500 miles per week. Other owner operator benefits include paid fuel surcharges on loaded miles, 100 percent reimbursement on authorized tolls, in-cab scanners, quarterly safety bonuses and discounts on fuel. Accessorial pay includes detention pay, layover pay and extra stop pay. Lease purchase opportunities are also available.

To become an independent contractor with Bay & Bay, drivers must have a valid CDL-A; at least one year of OTR experience; a passed Minnesota DOT inspection within the last 10 years; liability, physical damage and occupational accident insurance; and maintenance, fuel and road tax escrow accounts.
