Con-way Truckload on Thursday, Oct. 4, announced two improvements to driver pay packages designed to increase driver compensation. Effective Nov. 25, the company is instituting a $.01-per-mile increase in mileage pay, applicable to both company drivers and owner-operators.
The Joplin, Mo.-based company also is changing the standard for unpaid wait time when drivers are detained at customer loading docks; wait time before detention pay is earned has been reduced from three hours to two.
“Con-way Truckload has always prided itself on providing a competitive pay package that’s among the best in the industry and responding to the input and concerns of our drivers,” said Saul Gonzalez, president. “Today’s announcement reinforces our commitment to both of these objectives. Our drivers are the heart of our service performance. A competitive and well-thought-out compensation package reflects the crucial role our drivers play in the quality of our service and our recognition of the value they represent to our company and our customers.”
