C.R. England announced its largest driver pay raise in company history and third historic pay increase for drivers since 2018.
The pay increase, effective April 22, will benefit C.R. England’s line haul drivers in the company’s over the road division and drivers in training.
“This increase benefits every OTR driver that is paid mileage pay, which makes up the vast majority of our OTR fleet,” said Chad England, C.R. England CEO, in a press release. “It applies to drivers at every seniority level and to our current length of trip pay bands.”
The company says raising driver pay is an indicator C.R. England is committed to providing employees with a long-term career path.
This pay increase, combined with other increases since 2018, means average C.R. England driver pay checks have increased 50% during that time.
This increase aligns pay to be consistent with the highly competitive pay rates in C.R. England’s dedicated and intermodal divisions.
