VAN BUREN, Ark. — USA Truck Inc. is increasing the pay scale for its drivers effective immediately, the company reported today.

“There is nothing better than being able to tell our drivers: You’re getting a raise,” said James D. Reed, president and CEO. “This pay raise is part of our ongoing effort to make sure our driver team members are among the best treated and best compensated drivers on the road today.”

Reed said the pay raise comes after USA Truck added XM Satellite Radio to its tractors and raised rates for unexpected down time and short haul.

“We’ve also made it easier for our driver team members to earn a performance bonus,” Reed said. “In fact, they can be paid for mileage, mileage bonus, longevity and detention. We know that experienced truck drivers have many choices among carriers. We are grateful that our driver team members have chosen USA Truck. We are committed to providing them with the best overall experience and the best compensation package available.”
