Sitton Motor Lines has introduced “Pick Your Pay,” a new pay plan that enables owner-operators to choose between two compensation packages.
The first plan is pay-per-mile with benefits and features a base rate of 79.5 cents per mile plus a weekly-adjusted fuel surcharge. This option includes a license and permits, liability and cargo insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, payroll tax withholding, paid vacation, paid tolls, paid holidays, Prepass, TripPak, a 401K plan, layover pay, stop pay, drop pay, life insurance and more.
Health, dental and vision insurance are available to owner-operators at group rates. The total package is worth $1.07 per mile plus a weekly-adjusted fuel surcharge when all of the benefits are factored in.
The second plan is a pay-per-mile plan recently implemented at a higher base rate per mile but does not feature some of the perks associated with pay-per-mile with benefits. However, many benefits are included, at no charge to Sitton owner-operators, such as license and permits, tolls, Prepass, TripPak, layover pay, stop pay, detention pay, fuel taxes, liability and cargo insurance, orientation expenses, orientation pay, physical and drug screening.
Benefits that are not included in this plan or paid for by the owner-operator include tires, fuel and maintenance, owner-operator occupational accident insurance, physical damage insurance, non-trucking liability insurance, anti-theft and safety kit, passenger insurance, a 401K plan, health insurance, dental insurance, paid holidays and vacations, life insurance and escrow accounts.
