The truckload carrier, Schneider, is increasing compensation for company tanker drivers.

Most company tanker drivers will earn an additional 8% to 10% per mile, both loaded and unloaded, for an average increase of $4,000 per year, according to the Wisconsin-based operation, taking it up to $81,000 per year.

The increase comes on the heels of Schneider’s 10.5 cents per mile compensation increase for tanker owner-operators last month.

According to Schneider its tanker division is aggressively growing its chemical transportation business, adding company drivers and owner-operators to keep up with customer demand.

The company said in driving for Schneider’s tanker division, unlike other tanker carriers, two-thirds of its loads are nonhazardous, while the industry average is 80% hazardous loads.
