MEMPHIS, Tenn. —  Ozark Motor Lines, a family-owned ground transportation services company based in Memphis, Tennessee, recently initiated a new pay package for its company drivers.

The new package includes an increase in both cents per mile and accessorial pay.

“At Ozark, we’re committed to bringing drivers the best when it comes to their compensation packages,” said Mike Higginbotham, co-owner of Ozark Motor Lines. “We’re proud that Ozark is a place where drivers truly feel at home and know they can have a successful career here.”

Starting rates for line haul drivers under the new pay package are 41 cents per mile for drivers with less than a year of experience all the way up to 46 cents per mile for drivers with five or more years of experience.

Top out pay is 48 cents per mile.

Line haul team drivers start between 23-26 cents per mile, topping out at 26 cents per mile. Regional drivers can expect to start between 38-43 cents per mile, depending on experience, with top out pay at 46 cents per mile.

In addition to this pay package, Ozark Motor Lines makes insurance benefits available to new drivers from date of hire.

This includes Teladoc access to physicians, dental, vision, life and disability insurance options. Cancer and minimal essential coverage insurance options are also available one month after the driver’s hire date.

Ozark’s flexible home time program gives drivers 48 hours of home time after spending 10 days on the road.

Drivers can opt to stay out longer in exchange for extended home time hours.

Other benefits include 401k plan, sign-on bonus, PrePass, no Hazmat, no loading or unloading, and no Canadian or NYC routes.

“Ozark Motor Lines is known for its family atmosphere, stable growth and commitment to its drivers,” Higginbotham said.
