Ozark Motor Lines and Whiteline Express have announced new pay packages for drivers.
Ozark, a family-owned ground transportation services company based in Memphis, Tennessee, said effective June 1 experienced over-the-road and regional drivers will receive 2 cents per mile increase while driving teams will receive an additional 1 cent per mile.
Also, Ozark Motor Lines is rolling out its first-ever driver per diem program to benefit drivers in response to tax law changes that went into effect earlier this year.
“It’s always great to be able to raise pay for our hard-working professional drivers,” said Patrick Landreth, vice president of human resources and safety. “These truck drivers have such an important job, Ozark makes it a priority to reward them for it.”
In addition, Ozark has a flexible home time program which 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 New York City routes.
Ozark 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.
