Roehl Transport Inc. has announced it is increasing driver pay yet again this year. Effective July 22, the carrier is upping pay for drivers in its flatbed, refrigerated, and curtainside fleets where customer demand is strongest.
The Wisconsin-based company said these fleets have some of Roehl’s most complicated and demanding work, like securing and tarping loads, monitoring load temperatures, and ensuring food safety requirements are met, as well asworking directly with customers to plan multiple stops.
In Roehl’s Primary Commercial Zone, experienced flatbed drivers can start at 59 cents per mile, refrigerated drivers can start at 58 cents per mile, and curtainside drivers can start at 57 cents per mile.
Roehl said these rates are based on Practical Route miles, which tend to be 8% higher than household goods miles. Plus, in Roehl’s Your Choice Pay Plan, drivers can earn an increase each quarter up to Roehl’s top rate.
“The second pay increase this year on these fleets demonstrates Roehl’s commitment to our value of driver success and to meeting our customers’ needs,” said Tim Norlin, vice president of Driver Employment. “We also introduced Pay Accelerators this year for experienced drivers whot enhance their earnings while they learn our processes and procedures.”
