Epes Transport Announces Pay Enhancement
Greensboro, NC… Epes Transport System, a North Carolina-based truckload carrier, is known throughout the industry as a company that takes care of its drivers with its community-based driver culture, weekly home time, substantial benefits and safety bonuses. The company recently announced the addition of a new enhancement to its existing pay package, reinforcing its commitment to maintaining a competitive compensation package for its drivers. Effective April 1, 2012, the new Northeast premium pay enhancement will allow drivers to earn an additional 7 cents per loaded mile for every load delivering to Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
“We understand the added pressure of driving in some of the challenging and high stress environments that often present themselves in the Northeast,” said Britt Colley, president for Epes Transport System. “This pay increase serves to augment current compensation and reflect our company’s commitment to remaining one of the industry’s top fleets to drive for.”
This new Northeast premium pay will be applicable only on loaded dispatch miles to inbound destinations in the states listed above. Drivers will receive a separate line on their payroll settlements detailing the addition of the Northeast premium pay on qualifying trips taken during that pay period.
“Everyone here at Epes Transport appreciates the job our drivers do each and every day,” said Colley. “We thank them for their dedication, hard work and commitment to safety.”
Epes Transport was recently named one of the top nominees for the Truckload Carriers Association’s 2011 Best Fleets to Drive For. For more information about the driving opportunities at Epes Transport, please visit www.epestransport.com or call 866-323-1046.
