Marten Transport, a Wisconsin-based carrier, announced another raise in driver pay effective April 1, and contractor rate increases as high as 4 cents per mile effective May 1.

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 41.5 cents per mile; drivers with five years of prior experience to earn as much as 44.5 cents per mile; and senior drivers to earn as much as 48.5 cents 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.
