Marten Transport, a Wisconsin-based carrier, raised driver pay effective April 1.


"This pay raise will affect every OTR and regional company driver in our fleet," said Tim Norlin, Marten Transport director of recruiting. "Drivers will see their mileage pay increase by up to 4 cents per mile, depending on the length of haul."

These new increases, along with driver base rates on Marten Transport's Fair Pay sliding scale, allow drivers with one year of prior experience to earn as much as $0.415 per mile; drivers with five years of prior experience to earn as much as $0.445 per mile; and senior drivers to earn as much as $0.485 per mile.

In addition to maintaining pay levels during the economic downturn, Marten held its mileage rates and increased accessorial pay. Last year, the company also raised layover pay to $100 per day.
