CTL Transportation — a national tank truck company serving the 48 contiguous United States, Mexico and Canada with 11 terminal locations — announced an increase to its company driver pay package. CTL says the changes, which took effect Jan. 1, include significant increases in longevity pay for its existing drivers, as well as for newly hired experienced drivers.
CTL’s longevity pay schedule is designed to compensate drivers based on their tractor-trailer driving experience. CTL says that with these changes, it also has added additional pay to its accessorial pay items, and has increased some pay schedule stages.
The average annual pay increase for CTL’s professional tank truck company drivers is between $1,500 and $2,500. “In light of current economic conditions, this pay increase should especially indicate our commitment to our professional driving force,” says Ken Bauer, president of Mulberry, Fla.-based CTL.
