Prime Inc. Announces Pay Increase For OTR Company Drivers

Stronger fiscal performance this past year for Prime Inc. has resulted in increased revenue for its OTR Company Drivers, Independent Contractors, and Associates. Over-the-road Company Drivers (paid on the OTR per mile basis) started receiving a one cent per mile increase for any loads dispatched after August 3, 2013. In addition, line haul revenue for Independent Contractors increased four cents per mile during the last year.

"That success also meant raises for in-house associates," John Hancock, Prime Inc. Director of Recruitment and Driver Training, said. "Performance from everyone throughout the Prime family has resulted not only in increased revenue but in improved services across the board. The little things have made a big difference."

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were an estimated 793,470 truck drivers employed at the end of 2012. Median pay for these drivers is reported at $37,770 per year or $18.16 per hour.

"Our drivers continually make above industry standards. That is important to us," Hancock said.
