This company has grown to a 700+ truck carrier primarily operating east of the Mississippi River. Millis Transfer now announces a significant pay increase of 5 cents per mile for new as well as existing drivers. The raise is based on several factors and strengthens the company’s role as a leader in driver pay as well as overall driver package.
As one of the nation’s premiere dry-van fleets and a Certified Top Pay Carrier for 15 years in a row, the new increase proves this company remains 100% dedicated to its drivers.
“The goal of this pay increase is to reward our drivers for their longevity with Millis and pay for their performance,” Dave Millis, President of Millis Transfer, said. “Couple this with our well-maintained equipment, robust health benefits, and family-oriented work culture, and Millis Transfer is a clear and obvious leader when it comes to long-term driver opportunities.
This not only benefits the driver, but his or her family, the customers we service and our overall economy.” The new raise comes is an additional 2 cents per mile added to base pay and an additional 3 cents per mile toward the weekly mileage performance bonus. Millis drivers receive a pay raise every year.
A pay raise is also included for Millis Training Institute trainees, who attend MTI, a top accredited CDL-A school that consistently graduates hundreds of well-trained students every year. MTI trainees can expect to earn .44 per mile when on the road with their driver trainer. They will then receive an additional one cent every quarter during their first year of employment.
“We are the only company that offers a rate that high for trainees or first year drivers,” Millis said. “Along with great training pay, the Millis Training Institute also offers a well-accredited program with five school locations and one-on-one attention.”
This company’s dedication to closing the driver gap by bringing new drivers into the profession is vital to the continuation of this industry. As the average age of drivers grows, every company must commit to including the younger generation.
The Millis team continues a 85-year tradition of providing excellent driver pay and work experience. This company also includes other incentives such as 401k program with company match up to 30%, healthcare through United Health Care and MetLife and paid vacation and holidays.
