Baylor Trucking, a fleet of 200 trucks, announced this week a pay increase for its company drivers went into effect Jan. 1.
The new pay scale compensates drivers based on their verifiable CDL driving experience, as well as their time with Baylor, the company says. Nicole Egbert, marketing coordinator for Baylor, says current Baylor drivers with more experience could see as much as a four cent per mile increase in base pay.
Additionally, drivers with more than 2,500 miles in a week get paid a productivity incentive of an extra one cent per mile. The company’s full pay scale can be seen here.
“Baylor drivers work hard, they care about safety and service,” says Baylor Trucking President Cari Baylor. “We are proud of men and women delivering America daily and are excited to pay them more for their contributions.”
Baylor’s congestion pay for deliveries made in New York City, the five boroughs and Long Island was also increased, the company says, from $100 per load to $130 per load.
In November, Baylor announced a pay increase for its military veteran drivers of one cent per mile on top of their normal base pay.
