EAGAN, Minn. — For the second time in 2018, Transport America, a subsidiary of TFI International Inc., said it was implementing a pay increase for solo and team company drivers, effective October 21, 2018.
This pay increase enables solo over-the-road drivers to earn up to $80,000 annually, and team over-the-road drivers to earn up to $170,000 annually.
The company’s pay-for-performance structure recognizes drivers for their hard work and overall performance, making it possible for them to more rapidly achieve the top pay rates and additional performance bonuses, said Paul Simmons, Transport America president.
“We continue to have the utmost respect for our drivers and their dedication to keeping America moving, and we are excited to again be increasing their pay,” Simmons said. “We know our success begins with the great men and women working with us, one mile at a time, and we couldn’t do this without them.”
Simmons said Transport America operates by a driver-first philosophy.
“By providing our drivers with the utmost respect, more consistent home time, flexible routes, the best support in the industry and now increased pay, we are demonstrating our commitment to our outstanding professionals, and believe our customers will benefit from this pay increase as well,” Simmons said.
Transport America is provider of truckload transportation and logistics services throughout much of the U.S., Mexico and Canada. It has been in business since 1984 and is headquartered in Eagan.
