December 15, 2020 (Marshfield, WI) — Roehl Transport has announced a sweeping pay increase for company drivers that will add thousands of dollars to their annual earnings.
CEO Rick Roehl revealed the driver pay increase on KC Phillip’s SiriusXM RoadDog Live radio program. “At Roehl, safety is synonymous with professionalism, and our drivers are leaders in safety, productivity and pay. So this increase to our accident-free pay reinforces our commitment to rewarding our professional truck drivers,” Rick Roehl said.
Roehl Transport has long been on the National Transportation Institute’s list of Top Paying Carriers, validating their reputation as the Take Home More, Be Home More trucking company. Roehl’s pay plan is performance-based, and Roehl company drivers earn accident-free pay as they drive. They do not have to wait until the end of the year or even the quarter. “This could increase our drivers’ compensation by $2,000-3,000 or more per year,” Rick Roehl added. The driver pay increase will be effective on February 1, 2021.
In addition to increasing truck driver pay, Roehl Transport has added more than 100 home daily truck driving jobs throughout Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The new positions cater to experienced drivers who want to be home every day and weekends, too.
“We know that truck drivers are looking for local driving jobs because they want to be home more,” said Rick Roehl. “So we created additional positions that get drivers home every day. Many of these driving positions offer regional pay plans creating a great combination of more pay and more home time,” he added.
“Often experienced drivers take a pay cut to work a local driving job in their area – but not with these new positions,” Rick Roehl continued. “These drivers will average about 400 miles a day, working Monday through Friday, and they get home every day.”
As one of North America’s largest, safest and most successful trucking companies, Roehl Transport provides flawless transportation services to customers across the United States. The company employs experienced truck drivers and offers paid CDL training for people who want to be truck drivers with a variety of fleet and home time options such as national, regional and dedicated positions. More than half of Roehl drivers are home at least every week.
“During this peak shipping season, we’re open, hiring experienced drivers and training new drivers to meet the critical supply chain needs of our nation,” said Rick Roehl.
