Averitt Express is making it happen for all sorts of flatbed drivers and regional truckload drivers. Regional drivers are starting at a rate of 50 cents per mile. Usually, one would assume $1,200 for five-day weeks. Both types of drivers have seen a 2-cent-per-mile increase fter a year or so of receiving a hazmat endorsement. The carrier has made mention that they offer referral programs for drivers with a payout of upwards to $2,750. Averitt is able to give regional drivers the ability to transfer to local and dedicated positions.
Firstly, Averitt Express is possibly the top of LTL providers in all of the nation. The company operates over 5,500 trucks from more than 100 locations. Plenty of carriers have made announcements about driver pay increases after the end of 2020 and somehow in early 2021. The pool of qualified candidates has declined down. Driver schools may have made for 40% less graduates and Drug & Alcohol Clearinghouse records 56,000 driver violations. 80% of violations were related to failed tests administered to seek drugs.
Transportation employments is somehow lower in many levels prior to the pandemic as the competition from separate sectors make it tough for carriers to seat tractors.
