Cargo Transporters Announces Additional Driver Pay Increase

Cargo Transporters, Inc. is excited to announce that driver pay will increase effective July 5, 2015. The increase will be approximately 5% for over-the-road (OTR) drivers. This latest increase is coming on the heels of multiple increases. All OTR drivers received a 2 1/2% increase in February 2015 and a 10.1% increase given in calendar year 2014. In total, our OTR drivers will experience a 17.6% increase in a 15 month period.

The foundation of Cargo Transporters is a culture of family and safety. These values inspire Cargo Transporters to provide a wage that fairly compensates for the demanding lifestyle that is expected of professional drivers and their families. Dennis Dellinger, President of Cargo Transporters, states, “We have high expectations, relative to safety, of our current driving staff. These expectations allow us to market Cargo Transporters as a carrier of choice for those customers that look at safety and service as key components in their logistics needs. We are excited to continue our investment and reward our professional drivers.”

Cargo Transporters additionally provides many sought after benefits, which include Company-matched 401K, Health Insurance, Life Insurance, Short and Long Term Disability Insurance, vacation and holiday pay. We value our drivers’ time, so we offer detention, layover and mechanical pay as well.
